GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - The government shutdown will not stop a group of World War II veterans from the upper Midwest from traveling to the nation's capitol.
Honor Flight Twin Cities, a non-profit Minnesota Vietnam Veterans Charity, departs Saturday from the Hubert Humphrey terminal of Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport. The shutdown did force the group to alter its itinerary some. However, the veterans still plan to visit the WWII Memorial.
This will mark the 10th flight for Honor Flight Twin Cities. The organization offers free flights for World WWII veterans to travel to Washington, D.C. to see the national WWII monuments.
