ALBANY COUNTY, N.Y. -- Albany veterans took off on the flight of a lifetime Saturday morning to the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C.
Thirty-seven World War II veterans and their families gathered at Albany International Airport to see the group of vets off on their trip to the memorial.
The Honor Flight trip was sponsored by the Leather Socking Honor Flight group.
Members of the Cobleskill-Richmondville High School Band, as well as Director of Veterans Affairs William Kraus, participated in the ceremony wishing off the vets.
Veterans say it's a great chance to come together once again.
"Tremendous. I've never have such a feeling like this in my life. Never," said World War II veteran Adolph Krenn.
The veterans will land at Dulles International in Baltimore and travel by bus to the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C.
