BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KERO) — The 43rd installment of Honor Flight left Bakersfield Monday morning for our nation's capitol with 100 Vietnam veterans on board.
It comes just a few weeks after the only other flight in 2021 returned home after a 60-hour whirlwind trip east.
With guardians and support staff, another 180 people boarded a charter flight at Meadows Field at 9 a.m. Monday.
Tuesday will be spent on the mall visiting the memorials. Wednesday morning will begin at Arlington, followed by a trip to Fort McHenry before boarding a flight home.
The welcome home will be 7 p.m. Wednesday at the North High School stadium.
