Honor Flight of the Central Coast looking for veterans for all-expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C.

Honor Flight of the Central Coast is inviting local WWII and Korean War veterans to apply for a three-day "Tour of Honor" trip to Washington, D.C.

The all-expense paid trips are being planned for spring and fall of 2020.

During the three-day trip, veterans take a guided tour of military memorials, monuments and other points of interest in the D.C. area.

The Central Coast chapter serves veterans from northern San Luis Obispo County through Santa Barbara County.

“I’ve been on more than a dozen of these trips,” said McGill, “and every time I am moved to tears watching once-young soldiers remembering their pasts. Decades later, they remain fiercely patriotic and dedicated to our country.”

Honor Flight of the Central Coast is looking for any WWII and Korean veterans from the area who may be interested in the trip.

Veterans are accompanied by a guardian, usually a family member, who pays his or her own way.
