Freedom Honor Flight heads to Washington


La Crosse (WXOW) -- The latest Freedom Honor Flight is in Washington D.C. to celebrate the service of area veterans.

After leaving La Crosse early Saturday morning, the group of World War II, Korean War, and Vietnam veterans landed shortly before 10 a.m. Central time in the nation's capitol to begin their day of visiting a number of memorials.

Among the stop are the World War II memorial, Korean War memorial, and the Vietnam Wall. 

This is the 21st Freedom Honor Flight for veterans to travel to Washington. 

They are expected to return late Saturday evening to La Crosse.

WXOW has a crew along with the veterans today. We'll have live updates on Facebook throughout the day.
