APPLETON, Wis. (WFRV) – Local veterans are being honored on an Old Glory Honor Mission 55. The trip departed this morning at 6:30 a.m. with 97 veterans from Northeast Wisconsin.

The special flight is free to veterans and volunteers. Those on the flight will spend the entire day in Washington D.C. exploring the various memorials that honor them as well as the soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice.
