The group took off this morning from the Gulfport-Biloxi Airport for the Mississippi Gulf Coast Honor Flight.

Once they landed in Washington, they toured the World War II Memorial as well as other sites including the Lincoln Memorial and Arlington National Cemetery.

The vets are scheduled to return Thursday evening.
