Veterans return home to Monroe Regional Airport from Heroes Flight to DC

MONROE, La (KNOE) The 24 veterans who went on this weekend’s Heroes’ Flight have returned home.

The two dozen World War 2 and Korean war veterans were treated to a trip to Washington DC by Brookshire’s Grocery company and American Airlines.

The veterans landed this evening at Monroe Regional Airport to a cheering crowd thanking them for their service.

KNOE's own Tammi Arender was on that trip and she’ll have a series of stories chronicling their trip coming up on KNOE 8 news next week.
