Western Slope Honor Flight announced Friday they’ll take a second group of WWII veterans to Washington, D.C.
Officials say the first honor flight was such a success that they unanimously voted to host another one.
The flight is dedicated to taking veterans to see the memorials dedicated in their honor.
The next flight will leave May 4 and plans are to take 191 veterans, guardians and medical personnel.
The trip is free to veterans but guardians are asked to pay a fee of $950 to accompany the veteran and provide care.
