Nevada Honor Flight - Silver State Heroes Part 1

38 war veterans made the trip of a lifetime to Washington D.C. this weekend to see the memorials erected in their honor. Watch their stories right here on News 4 throughout the week.

Washington D.C. is filled with monuments to the men and women who fought for our country, but many veterans never have a chance to see them first hand. So Honor Flight Nevada is taking some local veterans to the capitol for free.

Honor Flight Nevada is a non-profit organization that uses public donations to send veterans to Washington D.C. to see their memorials at no cost to the veterans. You can find more information on the program including applications for a vet to fly on the next Honor Flight, how to donate, or become a guardian on the next trip by going to:
