WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- The year's second Kansas Honor Flight is scheduled to take 24 World War II veterans and their guardians to Washington, D.C., where they will spend two days visiting various memorials.

The group plans to leave Wichita at 6:25 a.m. Wednesday and return Friday afternoon. The trip is organized by Kansas Honor Flight Inc., whose mission is to transport veterans to Washington at no cost to them.

Among those expected to make the trip this week is Wichita resident Eddie Graham, who survived the Bataan Death March.

Public contributions cover the trips for veterans, while their guardians pay their own way. Organizers say additional trips are scheduled for the summer and fall.
