Ninety-seven local veterans were part of the May 12, 2018 Badger Honor Flight that departed the Dane County Regional Airport and arrived at Reagan National Airport in Washington D.C. for visit of the Arlington National Cemetery, The Korean War Veterans Memorial, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the World War II Memorial and other landmark sites.

Badger Honor Flight is a regional affiliate of the national Honor Flight Network. The purpose of the Honor Flight Network is to ensure that WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War and terminally ill veterans from any war have the opportunity to see the memorials that have been erected in their honor.

The Honor Flight Network provides the free trip to the veterans because of how much they have sacrificed for this great country already.
