KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) - A Buffalo County group is planning its own "Hero Flight" to Washington, D.C., for county veterans of the Korean War.
The flight is scheduled to take off on June 4, with the veterans returning to Buffalo County on June 7.
The Planning Committee for the Korean War Hero Flight will announce details at a news conference on Friday.
An Omaha-based organization, Patriotic Productions, is raising money for three March 25 flights for Korean War veterans from across the state. Organizer Bill Williams said Thursday that he remained about $30,000 short of his organization's goal but expected no problems.
