SPOKANE, Wash. – More than 90 veterans from all of our nation’s Armed Forces left Spokane Monday for Washington D.C. as part of the Inland Northwest Honor Flight. On Tuesday evening, they are scheduled to return – and you can welcome them home.
Veterans from World War II, the Korean and Vietnam wars all got on a plane and made the five-plus hour trip to our nation’s capital to visit memorials dedicated to them and their comrades.
Their plane is scheduled to land at the Spokane International Airport around 6:50 p.m. Pacific time. That time can change depending on flight conditions, and KREM 2 News will work to keep you up to date on their arrival.
Those wanting to welcome the veterans home are asked to meet at the main terminal’s baggage claim.
The flight was free for veterans because of generous donations provided by you as a part of our Salute 2 Service campaign. The campaign is a partnership between KREM 2 News, Kalispel Tribe of Indians, and Northern Quest Resort and Casino. The donations paid for travel, lodging, and food for our veterans.
