Honor Flight gets donation, celebrates 8 years

Posted:
MACOMB, Ill. (WGEM) -

Eight years, that's how long the Great River Honor Flight program has provided trips to Washington, D.C. for veterans.

More than 1,400 local vets have taken their flight. 

Support for veterans continued Tuesday night as the American Legion and the Auxiliary Chapter both presented the program with donations totaling $1,500 from fundraisers held earlier this year.

Macomb and McDonough County have played a big role in both fundraising and providing veterans to be honored with the trip. 

Flights resume next April with "Mission 46".
