The 10th Veterans Honor Flight will return home on Tuesday, May 9th. The Welcome Home Celebration begins at 5pm and the community is invited to bring a chair and enjoy live entertainment and several food trucks.

Flight #10 Welcome Home Celebration will be held outside at the front airport entrance of Veterans Airport in Marion. Eighty-seven Veterans will pass through the Freedom Path in the airport terminal to see the community celebrating their return. The Welcome Home committee encourages community members to wear patriotic attire and wave a flag or banner to show appreciation for our local Vets. There will be plenty of offsite parking and shuttle transportation.
