Local veterans return home after Honor Flight to D.C.
ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Some local veterans are back home after the trip of a lifetime. Honor Flight Rochester’s mission 75 landed on Sunday afternoon at the Frederick Douglass Greater Rochester International Airport.
The veterans spent the weekend in D.C. visiting and reflecting on the war memorials built in their honor. “Rubbing elbows with these guys, there’s just so much stuff I didn’t understand,” said World War II army veteran Walter Predmre. “The Korean War, Vietnamese War, you know I just didn’t understand the magnitude of those wars.”
