Veterans welcomed home from Honors Flight San Diego

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) –  Hundreds gathered at the San Diego International Airport to greet 64 veterans returning from Washington D.C.

Honor Flight San Diego is a non-profit organization that takes veterans from San Diego County on a three-day trip to the nation’s capital. There, they visit memorials that honor their service and sacrifice.

Veterans on this trip had served in World War II, the Vietnam War and the Korean War.

The veterans received a warm welcome from the crowd as they walked through the terminal. For many, it was a welcome they never received.
