Upper Peninsula Honor Flight takes vets to DC memorials

ESCANABA, MI— Four veterans from the D.J. Jacobetti Home in Marquette took an Honor Flight to Washington, D.C. Wednesday.

They received a parade escort to the Delta County Airport and joined 80 other veterans on the flight. A bus then took them to D.C.-area landmarks, including the World War II Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument, Korean War Veterans Memorial, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and the National Mall.

The four from Jacobetti are all veterans of the Vietnam War.

The vets returned from the nation’s capital to the Delta County Airport around 8:30 Wednesday night.
