Veterans Take Off For Another Trip of A Lifetime with Mid-Michigan Honor Flight

Dozens of veterans are getting ready for the trip of a lifetime, the Mid-Michigan Honor Flight.

It’s an emotional experience that takes dozens of local heroes on a free trip to Washington D.C. to see the memorials built in their honor.

This group of veterans will take off from Traverse City’s Cherry Capital airport around 8:30 a.m.

When they land in D.C., the vets will visit the World War II Memorial, the Korean War Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery and many other meaningful sites.

Organizers say it’s a whirlwind trip and a well-deserved “thank you” to our local veterans who have served and sacrificed.

9&10’s Gabriella Galloway and photojournalist Catie Emery were honored to join them this time.

We’ll be checking in on them for the duration of the group’s visit.
