Veterans return home from Cedar Valley Honor Flight

WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Eastern Iowa veterans return home after a long and emotional day in Washington, D.C.

It's another honor flight carrying vets to the national memorials built in their honor.

People of all ages came with homemade signs to welcome home veterans.

"These guys gave their life; their only life for our freedom," said Susan Sinnwell. "I am from a long line of people; my brother was in the Air Force and my grandparents and parents. So, they need a hero's welcome. It is about time they got one."

More than 160 veterans were on Tuesday's flights.

The final honor flight of this year will be September 27th. The public is invited to welcome home those veterans that evening.
