World War II veterans from Georgia and their guardians flew into Washington D.C. on Wednesday, Sept. 17,  for the 10th trip from Honor Flight Conyers and the third trip of 2014.

Many veterans and their families met for dinner at O'Charley's Tuesday night before the trip.

The veterans and their guardians met in the early morning hours from the American Legion Post 77 for escorted transportation to Hartsfield-Jackson International to catch their flight.

Honor Flight Conyers provides day-trips for WWII veterans throughout Georgia free of charge to visit monuments and memorials such as the WWII Memorial and Arlington National Cemetery. Guardians who accompany each veteran must pay their own way.

Previous trips in 2014 were held in April and May.
