April 6 was a memorable day for the 72 veterans and their guardians as they took off from Lakeland Linder Airport for Washington, D.C. They were participating in the fourth Flight to Honor — Polk Veterans.
As part of the flight, once arriving in the nation’s capital, the veterans and guardians visited the World War II Memorial.

When the weather improved, the original itinerary was returned and visits were made to the Korean War and Vietnam memorials.
