The Honor Flight of Southern Indiana spent Saturday saluting our veterans with the help of the community.

Trip to Washington D.C. were grounded yet again this Fall.

So, for more than 300 area veterans waiting to experience their Honor Flight, the organization hosted a drive-thru parade.

Everyone was invited to the Vanderburgh 4H Center Saturday morning, along with signs, flags, and big smiles.

Organizers say this was to show our Nation's Heroes we haven't forgotten them.

"A lot of the veterans, you know they're older and they tend to think people forgot them," says Scott Zoll, Marine Corps Veteran. "And this gives them that chance to say we love you, we appreciate what you've done, and they stand up taller."

Honor Flight says all veterans who were scheduled to fly in 2020 and 2021 will remain top priority for the next flight, hopefully scheduled for 2022.

Our third day in a row with very mild temperatures. Highs across the Tri-State were in the low and middle 60's. A few showers at times crossed the area. A cold front will push through the Tri-State and will cause a few strong storms, that could have strong winds and even some torrential rain. Some flash flooding is a possibility. Strong winds overnight switching from the southwest to the northwest and may gust as high as 30 mph.
