MIDDLETON (WKOW) -- Organizers of Badger Honor Flight hope to send more veterans to Washington, D.C.
There was a benefit Thursday night for the program at Scatz Nightclub in Middleton.
Proceeds will be used to send World War II Veterans to Washington, D.C. to see the memorial in their honor.
"This generation never looked for a thank you from the American public, said Brian Ziegler, board president of Badger Honor Flight. "This is just our way of thanking them for what they have done," he said.
Each flight costs about $90,000. A 27 News crew will accompany veterans on the next flight on October 2. We'll bring you more stories about the trip in the coming weeks.
