Honor Flight

Land of Lincoln Honor Flight, part of the national Honor Flight network, has flown more than 3,500 central Illinois veterans to Washington, D.C. since 2009, including 76 more on Tuesday, Sept. 12. They visited the World War II Memorial, the Korean War Veterans Memorial and the Vietnam War Veterans Memorial, along with Arlington National Cemetery and other historic sites. For the men and women who served, the flight offers honor, and for some, closure, and it was a privilege to document the day.
