100 local veterans return home on Honor Flight

100 men and women who served our country returned home Tuesday to the Spokane Airport where they received a hero’s welcome. Hundreds of people lined both sides of the A/B Concourse and cheered the veterans as they arrived.

The group which included five WWII veterans, 80 Vietnam veterans and several Korea veterans left Monday morning on an Honor Flight to Washington D.C. to visit memorials and statues built in their honor.

The Inland Northwest Honor Flight organization provides these trips free of charge to locval veterans as a small gesture of thanks for their service to our country.

“It’s a memory in life for me, and I’m 85 years old and I just feel that this is the last goal that I achieved of my life and I really loved it,” said Vietnam veteran Robert Nowak.
