Big homecoming for Waterloo Honor Flight

Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

After a long and emotional day, veterans received a big homecoming Tuesday night.

Tuesday marked the first of three honor flights out of Waterloo this year.

Veterans head to Washington, D.C. to see all the sites and memorials. When they return home, a warm welcome awaits. "I heard there would be some people, but I didn't expect anything like that. I try not to get a big head, but it brought a big smile to my face. It still does," said Roger Anhalt, a Korean War Veteran.

The other Waterloo flights this year are scheduled for June and September.
