Nearly 70 Valley World War II veterans recently made a very emotional journey to the nation's capitol to view the memorial in their honor.
Another group is set to leave in just a few weeks and then again in September. KSEE24 is hosting a telethon tonight, Wednesday, to send help with costs.
President of the Central Valley Honor Flight joined us on Sunrise to tell us how much the flight costs, how the money is spent and what this trip means to our veterans.
Watch the video for the interview.
The telethon is happening from 5pm-7pm. The number to call is (559) 761-1862.
