Two back-to-back Honor Flights are heading from Dubuque to the nation’s capital this week.
The inaugural Honor Flight left Dubuque in 2010 – but after several years of taking veterans on flights to Washington D.C. for this special once-in-a-lifetime trip, the Honor Flight of Greater Dubuque came to an end.
Now, it’s back – as the Honor Flight of Dubuque and the Tri-States. The first flight left early Monday morning and returned last night – with the second flight making the trip today.
Today’s flight is filled with Vietnam veterans and one Korean War veteran. Monday’s flight included veterans from the Korean and Vietnam, as well as the Cold War and Desert Storm.
