Over $21,000 Raised So Far for Buffalo County Hero Flight


Over $21,000 has been raised for the Buffalo County Korean War Hero Flight that is scheduled to take place in June.

The trip to Washington, D.C., for veterans of the Korean War is expected to cost between $55,000 to $60,000. That would allow 25 veterans from Buffalo County to take part in the trip free of charge, including meals, hotel rooms, flights and bus rides.

The veterans and their escorts will head to Omaha on June 4, stay the night and then flight to the nation's capital on June 5 to see memorials and other historic sights. The participants will then fly back on June 7.
