Honor Flight: A Final Salute

SIOUX FALLS, SD -
The World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. is dedicated to a generation of Americans who emerged from the Great Depression to fight and win the most devastating war in world history.
Thanks to the Honor Flight organization and the generosity of people across South Dakota, 1,400 veterans have now seen the memorial. It was an emotional journey that brought together old friends and families and re-surfaced stories that haven't been shared in decades.
In this hour-long special, Honor Flight: A Final Salute, we'll share stories from all twelve flights. We'll hear from the people who made Honor Flight possible and from the veterans and chaperones who are grateful for the experience.

Because of the delay in Monday night's broadcast due to tennis, KELO-TV will also re-air the special this Sunday, September 18 at 3 pm on our station UTV.
