TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - In a moving and powerful experience, a group of local veterans from the Tallahassee area traveled to Washington, D.C. this weekend to see the monuments honoring their service.
The Honor Flight Tallahassee journey gave veterans a once-in-a-lifetime whirlwind tour of the U.S. capital and its memorials for service members. WCTV’s Ben Kaplan, Katie Kaplan and Savannah Kelley joined the honorees on the Honor Flight Tallahassee excursion.
The team documented the veterans’ stories. Every Friday leading up to Memorial Day, WCTV will release a new story as part of the It’s Our Honor series to commend a veteran’s service. Follow along here.
