Duluth, MN (Nothland's NewsCenter) - For the second time just this year, Northland war heroes will receive a big honor in the nation's capital.

Tuesday morning, the second Honor Flight Northland will take nearly 100 veterans along with care takers to Washington D.C

The day-long trip, made possible by generous donations from across the region, will bring the Veterans to various war memorials and other landmarks.

People are encouraged to welcome home the Veterans at the Duluth airport Tuesday at 10pm.
