The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that “Vietnam veterans traveled to Washington, D.C., [Aug. 2] on the first ever Yellow Ribbon Honor Flight for Wisconsin veterans. The group left EAA AirVenture in the morning and returned after the air show.”

“Appleton-based Old Glory Honor Flight, whose motto is “It’s never too late to say thank you,” has organized numerous one-day trips to Washington for World War II veterans to visit memorials. To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the end of hostilities in Vietnam, organizers arranged a one time-only trip for Vietnam veterans.”
