COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Dozens were sporting their red, white and blue in honor of South Carolina veterans coming home after visiting Washington, D.C.

The veterans returned to Columbia Wednesday night. 

In 2004, a World War II memorial for our nations's most senior heroes was dedicated, however, now in their 80's and 90's, a number of veterans have no means to visit.

The Honor Flight Network began as a small token of appreciation to take World War II veterans to visit the memorial in Washington, D.C.

The entire flight and subsequent bus tour are completely free.

Donations are what make it possible to send South Carolina's honorable veterans to Washington, D.C.
