Close to 100 eastern Iowa veterans are visiting our nation's capital today for the second Sullivan Hartogh Davis Cedar Valley Honor Flight of the year. The flight departed from the Waterloo Regional Airport at about 7 a.m.

Veterans and their guardians will be visiting the war memorials in their honor in Washington D.C., and will also visit Arlington National Cemetery towards the end of the day.

There are veterans on the flight from World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War.

The group is scheduled to return home around 9:30 tonight; people are encouraged to welcome them back at the Waterloo Regional Airport.
