Newsradio 620 WTMJ listeners made Saturday's two Stars and Stripes Honor Flights to Washington, D.C. happen through donations of $250,000.

As a way of thanking them, they are taking listeners along for the ride on these Honor Flights with 140 World War II and Korean War veterans, along with their guardians.

This will be a full day for our vets, taking them from Milwaukee to their monuments in Washington, D.C., planned trips to the Tomb of the Unknowns and to various monuments around Washington, D.C.

They will share the day with other vets in a way that has been described as a life-changing experience.

Come along for the journey! Check out continuing coverage on our live blog below.
