It’ll be a whirlwind day for over seven dozen northeast Iowa veterans Wednesday.

The 28th Waterloo Honor Flight will take 90 Vietnam and Korean veterans and over 70 guardians on a one-trip to Washington D.C., where they will visit various war memorials and other venues recognizing the sacrifices of those who served their country in the military.

Among the veterans scheduled to make the trip are Charles City Army veterans Edwin Hegtvedt, Kenneth Heitz, John Herron, William Jacobs, and Roger Kellogg; plus Navy vet Kenneth Bailey and Air Force vets Gary Quint and David Seckar.

Other area veterans taking the flight to and from Washington include Navy vets Gary Steven of New Hampton and David Stahl of West Union; Air Force vet William Enlo of Elma, and Army vets James Zwanziger of Nashua, Richard Freidhof of Cresco, and James Lantow and Arnold Boge both of Ionia.

The Honor Flight is scheduled to depart from Waterloo Municipal Airport at 6:30 a.m. Iowa time with arrival in Washington, D.C at 9:30 a.m. local time and returning to Iowa about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday night.
