Texas South Plains Honor Flight veterans wrap up Day 1 in DC

LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - KCBD is proud to travel with veterans from the Texas South Plains Honor Flight as they head to Washington, DC to see the memorials built to honor the wars they fought for us.

Our final wreath laying and stop was at the Air Force Memorial. The Texas South Plains Honor Flight will have an even busier day tomorrow! But join us tonight at 10 for our recap of today!
