BAKERSFIELD - Some of Kern County's bravest hit the skies with Honor Flight Tuesday morning.
Eighty veterans are off the see the memorials in Washington D.C. built for them.
The program is free of charge for the veterans. Many Kern County residents host fund raisers for Honor Flight.
One young man raised money at his school because his great grandfather is on the flight.
"To me it was important because it was my great grandpa and he's a hero to me and to my school," said Andrew Sparling. "He's also a hero to everyone because he fought for us."
You can help welcome these veterans home on Thursday at 8 p.m. at Meadows Field.
