Yesterday was a special day here in Owensboro as the Daviess County Sheriff’s Office and others helped send off 7 local members of the World War II armed services to Washington D.C.

They spent last night in Louisville and will take off this morning for the capitol where they will unite with other veterans from WWII. They will all be honored at the World War II Memorial.  It’s all part of the Honor Flight program.

If you’d like to honor them head to the Sportscenter  around 11am tomorrow. That’s the approximate time they’ll be back.
