Honor Flight Northern Colorado will depart the Embassy Suites in Loveland on Sunday with the 12th flight since it’s inception in September 2008.
On board this time will be 33 World War II veterans, 73 Korean War veterans, and 15 Vietnam veterans.
Accompanying them will be 65 guardians — or escorts — to assure that the experience of the trip will be something they all will remember for years to come, according to a news release from Honor Flight Northern Colorado.
With this trip, almost 1,600 will have had this opportunity to be thanked — many for the first time.
The public is encouraged to attend the send-off, which begins at 7:30 a.m. Sunday at the Embassy Suites, 4705 Clydesdale Parkway.
