A group of local veterans has returned from their Honor Flight to Washington D.C. Saturday.
Family, friends and the Central Oregon community gave them a warm welcome as their flight landed at the Redmond Municipal Airport.
It’s an annual trip, giving veterans a chance to reflect on the memorials dedicated to their service and sacrifice.
Following the landing there was a procession from the airport to Ridgeview High School where the welcome home event was held.
Every veteran on the flight was given a special quilt from the Central Oregon Quilting Guild.
