OWENSBORO, Ky. (AP) - A group of Owensboro-area veterans have joined an “Honor Flight” to Washington, D.C. to visit memorials there.

The Owensboro Messenger-Inquirer reports (http://bit.ly/1ARVo4V) the veterans from World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War left the Owensboro Sportscenter on Friday afternoon.

They were expected to visit the World War II, Korean War and Vietnam Veterans memorials. If time permits, they will also visit the Arlington National Cemetery.

Air Force veteran William Miller, of Central City, served during the Korean and Vietnam wars and said he was looking forward to seeing the monuments.

Emil Ahnell, of Owensboro, served in the Navy during World War II and said the trip would help “renew a sense of history.”

The Blue Grass Honor Flight Chapter provides trips at no expense to the veterans.
