PEORIA, Ill. -- Dozens of local World War II and Vietnam veterans will be honored Tuesday when the second Greater Peoria Honor Flight departs.

They will fly to Washington DC to see the national monuments paying tribute to them.

Just like in June for the first flight, the public is invited to welcome the veterans back home at the Peoria International Airport.

You are asked to meet at the CEFCU parking lot at 8 p.m. where a shuttle will take you to the greeting area.

News 25 and HOI 19 News' Beau Ebenezer will be traveling with the group to DC and we'll have updates for you Tuesday night.
