QUINCY (WGEM) — As the countdown continues to the first Great River Honor Flight of 2019, the program got another local boost.
Kappa Kappa Psi, a Quincy University music fraternity, sold t-shirts at a QU football game dedicated to Veterans this past fall.
They donated part of those proceeds to Honor Flight.
The first mission of 2019 is scheduled for April 6 out of John Wood Community College.
It will be the 52nd trip to D-C overall.
To date, 1,668 local WWII, Korea and Vietnam veterans have had the chance to experience an Honor Flight.
