ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — A large donation to Honor Flight Rochester Wednesday will give dozens of our veterans a chance to make the trip to our nation's capital.

The Rochester Corvette Club donated $15,000, which is the largest donation the club has ever made.

Honor Flight takes local veterans on free trips to Washington, D.C. to visit the memorials in honor of their service. This latest donation will fund travel for 30 vets.

Honor Flight trips have been grounded since last year due to the pandemic.

Organizers say they're eager to take to the skies again when is safe for our veterans, guardians, and volunteers.
