Veterans from Calhoun County are preparing for a trip to our nation’s capital and you are invited to help send them off and welcome them home. More than 35 Veterans of World War II, the Korean War, and the war in Vietnam have been selected to take a trip to Washington D.C. provided by the Calhoun County Honor Flight Organization. The veterans will depart from the Oxford Civic Center on Monday at 1pm. The group will return to the civic center Tuesday night between 9 and 10. The public is encouraged to come out and give a celebratory send off and a warm welcome home. While in D.C., the veterans will get the chance to see monuments and museums.
