Honor Flight takes veterans of World War II, Korea, Vietnam and the Cold War on a trip to Washington D.C., to visit the memorials in their honor.  The two day trips are free and made possible thanks to community support. 

This weekend's trip was the final one for the year.  More than 2500 veterans have flown from to the nation's capitol, since Honor Flight Rochester began in 2008.
