DULUTH - Veterans returned home to the Northland after spending the day in Washington D.C.
The third "Honor Flight Northland" landed Tuesday night at Duluth International Airport.
Eighty-five veterans visited the World War II memorials for free.
Veterans and family members said it was a memorable trip.
"It looks like a whole different place. They had really done a lot to modernize it and really made it shine. Really neat,” said U.S. Army Veteran James Ritter.
"They even had squad cars lead our four busses through all the stop signs and everything else and they just zipped us through Washington D.C. from one memorial to the other and it was pretty fantastic," said U.S. Marine Core Veteran Charlie Lauritsem.
Organizers are hoping to schedule two more honor flights this fall if the funds are raised in time.
