MILWAUKEE – A group of local veterans had a big homecoming celebration Saturday night at Mitchell International Airport. The group was returning from a trip to Washington DC to see memorials built in their honor. It was the 19th mission for the Stars and Stripes Honor Flight.

Nearly a dozen World War Two and more than a dozen Korean War Veterans made the trip to see their memorials.

The final Honor Flight for this year is scheduled for November. During that flight two planes will be used. One will be for World War Two Veterans and the other for Korean War Veterans.
