MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - Twenty-four New Hampshire veterans are visiting the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. as part of a traditional Father’s Day trip.

The group Honor Flight New England organized the trip for the World War II veterans.

The veterans were escorted to Manchester-Boston Regional Airport by police, a bagpipe band and about 80 bikers at about 5 a.m. Sunday.

WMUR reports (https://bit.ly/1uuxOll ) it is Honor Flight’s third trip this year.

Once the veterans return Sunday night, Honor Flight can say it’s helped more than 1,000 veterans make the trek since its first flight in June 2009.

The group uses donations to fly veterans to Washington to visit their memorials.
