A local organization is sending World War Two veterans from greater Lafayette to the nation’s capital.

Lafayette’s Gold Star Mothers charity is preparing for its first Honor Flight, which will take 81 veterans to see the WWII memorial in Washington, D.C. The one-day trip takes off from the Purdue Airport on April 16.

Secretary Treasurer Pam Mow says the veterans who participate are each given a partner.
