Greater Peoria Honor Flight takes off for another flight

Posted: Updated:

The Greater Peoria Honor Flight is once again on its way to Washington D.C. with some of our nation's finest.

A plane carrying our veterans took off early Tuesday morning en route to Washington, D.C.

The vets participated in the honor flight, a special day giving of guided tours of various war monuments in the nation's capitol.

The vets also enjoyed a trip to the Naval Memorial at Arlington National Cemetery, where they got to witness the changing of the guard. 

They will return home to the General Wayne A. Downing Peoria International Airport around 9:30 PM Tuesday, where they will receive a hero's welcome.

It will be an experience some didn't get when they returned home from war.
