The Land of Lincoln Honor Flight of Springfield has helped more than 2,200 veterans make the trip to Washington D.C. to visit their memorials.  The organization has planned several more trips this year, and the first one is scheduled for takeoff today.

Honor Flight Volunteer John Dust tells The Big Z that it’s a challenge to ensure all veterans have the chance to make the trip.
