Last Southern Arizona Honor Flight with only WWII veterans

On Saturday morning, the non-profit Honor Flight gave 72 WWII veterans the chance to go to Washington D.C. and visit the WWII memorial. It will be the last flight with only WWII veterans.

"I'm extremely excited. I've been through D.C. I've only driven through. I've never seen anything or been there. I've always wanted to see the World War memorial," said Beatrice Kornman, a WWII veteran.

The veterans will be returning to Tucson International Airport at 4:00 PM on Monday. Honor Flight encourages the community to come to the airport and welcome them out.
