Welcome World War II veterans home

Northlanders soon will have another opportunity to honor our local World War II veterans.

Honor Flight Northland is flying about 90 WWII vets to Washington, D.C., today to tour the nation’s capital and its monuments. They will fly out of Duluth International Airport around 6:30 a.m. and return about 10 p.m. A public welcome-home celebration is scheduled at the airport when the veterans from America’s greatest generation return.
