Today marks the third trip for Oklahoma veterans to visit national memorials dedicated to honoring their service and sacrifices.

A plane is set to lift off on Wednesday, May 4, 2011 from Will Rogers World Airport. The plane will carry 100 Oklahoma veterans to our nation's capitol.

They are flying free of charge, thanks to the Honor Flight Program.

The group is going to visit our country's sacred war monuments, symbolizing wars they fought including WWII, Korea and Vietnam.

Tuesday night, the veterans held a pre-flight event at Rose State College, which allowed organizers, friends and family to gather together and wish our veterans a safe trip.

Another honor flight is scheduled to take off from Tulsa in June.
