TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) -

The Tuscaloosa Rotary Honor Flight is planning its fifth trip to Washington, D.C., on October 1.

Honor Flight takes veterans to see the war memorials at no cost to the veterans.

The Tuscaloosa flight is looking for World War II and Korean War veterans to travel on the trip, as well as guardians, who pay a fee and accompany the veterans.

Organizers say the warm reception the veterans receive from strangers in Washington, D.C., is often a big surprise to the veterans.

"People from all over the country will come up to them, and treat them like heroes, want their autograph. They'll want to hear stories, and they'll just want to, in general, talk to them and meet them and thank them for their service," Tuscaloosa Rotary Honor Flight organizer Jordan Plaster said.
 
The flight is a one-day trip to Washington, D.C., from Tuscaloosa.
