Honor Flight Asks For Community Support After May Flight

We are officially less than a month away from the Honor Flight taking flight out of Bridgeport.

It aims to get World War II, Korean, and Vietnam veterans to their memorials in Washington D.C.

Organizers said 92 veterans and 55 guardians will take part in the flight on May 10.

Out of those veterans, 50 served during World War II, 41 served in Korea, and 1 served in Vietnam.

It costs the Honor Flight organization $500 dollars for each veteran.

There have been two flights out of Huntington and only one veteran from North Central West Virginia was able to attend.

The flight will leave from North Central West Virginia airport for the first time and organizers are asking the public to come and show their support for the veterans on the big day.

When the flight returns to the North Central West Virginia Airport in Bridgeport, people are encouraged to greet the vets when they step off the plane.

The flight is expected to arrive back in Bridgeport at 8:30 p.m.

People interested in attending should arrive at the airport around 7:30 p.m.
