They are all part of Austin’s first Honor Flight of 2014

The veterans will be given a heroes departure from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport around noon, complete with bag pipes, drums and a water canon salute as the plane taxis to the runway.

While in Washington, they will have the opportunity to visit memorials honoring their service to our country.

They will return Saturday to ABIA around 8 p.m. and the public is invited to welcome them home.

These trips on are made possible at no cost to the veterans through donations.
