Honor Flight Chicago provides senior war veterans with a special, all-expense-paid-trip to visit the World War II, Korean War and Vietnam War memorials.  Henderson Yarbrough, a Vietnam Veteran who served as an E-5 Specialist in the U.S. Army, was escorted off the flight by a member of the U.S. Navy.  The September 16 flight included two World War II veterans, 12 Korean War veterans and 11 Vietnam veterans.
