By now, you're probably familiar with Honor Flight Chicago and our series, "A Flight to Remember." Basically, Honor Flight finds local World War II veterans and gives them a free trip to Washington, D.C. to see their memorial. And we're going along with them.
Starting at 2 a.m. Wednesday, I'll be live-blogging the trip, from Aurora to Midway Airport to Washington and back. But you won't just have to read my thoughts - I'll be sitting next to some of the most interesting people you could ever hope to meet. About 60 of them, in fact. And I'll be listening as they reminisce about their military service and their lives after the war. I promise you some great stories.
Our ace photographer Heather Eidson will also be bringing you images of the trip throughout the day. We're also launching our new A Flight to Remember Web site on Wednesday, where you'll be able to read our stories and watch our videos over the next few days. It promises to be an emotional journey, and I hope you come along.
