KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) - Officials say the fund drive has passed $21,000 for the Buffalo County Korean War Hero Flight.

The Kearney Hub says (https://bit.ly/1lhEErS ) the trip will be June 4-7 for 25 Korean War veterans from Buffalo County and their escorts. The travelers will head to Omaha on June 4, stay the night and fly to Washington, D.C., on June 5 so they can see the memorials and other sites in the nation’s capital. They will fly back on June 7.

All expenses are paid for the veterans, including meals, hotel rooms, flights and bus rides.

The trip is expected to cost $55,000 to $60,000.
