The Stars and Stripes Honor Flight program in southeastern Wisconsin has announced that it is now accepting applications from veterans from the Vietnam War. An online application is available at the Stars and Stripes Honor Flight website. WWII and Korean War veterans who apply will be given priority. Flight dates are September 16, October 14, and November 4, 2017. A Stars and Stripes Honor Flight is a one day, all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, DC for a WWII veteran, Korean War veteran, Vietnam War veteran or terminally ill veteran of any conflict to see the memorials that were built in their honor and to experience a full day of honor and appreciation for their service. The flights originate from and return to Mitchell International Airport. All chaperones must apply at the same time as their veteran.
