World War II and Korean War veterans who are unable to travel to Washington, D.C., with Honor Flight to see their memorials are invited to a virtual experience during a special luncheon.

According to a representative from Honor Flight Southern Nevada, some veterans cannot travel for the three-day, two-night trip because of health issues so the experience will be recreated during the Feb. 24 lunch, which is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

There is no cost for the lunch for veterans and each veteran can bring a guest, who must pay $25. The luncheon will include a video of the memorials visited on the trips and special recognition of the veterans’ service.

“I am heartened that we get to recognize those that are unable to see the memorials in person in Washington, D.C.,” said Belinda Morse, executive director of Honor Flight Southern Nevada. “We are honored to host this event and acknowledge those who served our great nation.”

Honor Flight Southern Nevada’s next flight is scheduled for April 27-29.

Applications are required for either the virtual experience or flight; they can be found at www.HonorFlightSouthernNevada.org.

LAS VEGAS – 27 local veterans are back from Washington, D.C. as part of the Honor Flight program.

Friends and family welcomed their veterans home on Sunday after they spent the last three days in the nation’s capital.

21 World War II veterans and six Korean War veterans got the chance to visit the memorials dedicated to their service and sacrifices they made for our country.

Honor Flight Southern Nevada says the group visited different sites this weekend and laid a wreath at Arlington Ceremony.

The organization says it makes these trips to give veterans closure and affirmation about what their service meant to our country.

Veterans say were in awe of the gift.

“This greeting I can’t express enough emotion that was caused by the greeting and the people that came to it. I’m just lost for words, to be honest with you,” said Frank Duca, WWII veteran.

This was Honor Flight Southern Nevada’s 10th trip to Washington, D.C.
