Seventh Honor Flight Returns

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Nearly 80 veterans returned home to Montana from Washington D.C. for the seventh Big Sky Honor Flight.

Hundreds crowded into Billings Logan International Airport to welcome the vets home. For Judy Brewer, seeing her dad come back brought tears to her eyes.

Judy said her father has finally received the proper welcome home and thank you.

"Did they have welcome homes when they came home the first time? I don't think he's ever talked about anything like that during our lifetime with him," Judy said.

Judy anxiously waited with other family members to catch a glimpse of her dad, as veterans got off of the plane from Washington D.C.

"Everyone wants to give you a hug and a kiss!" said Donald Brewer, Judy's dad and WWII veteran. "It feels good to be home and see all those people! I don't deserve all that."

Judy, however, said her father deserved the trip.

"He put in a lot of years during WWII. He was away from his family and it was tough. It brought tears to my eyes. I'm so grateful that he's with us, you know, it's hard to put it into words but we're very proud of him, very, very proud for what he went through. I think it was a trip of a lifetime for him. I'm really glad he got to go."

KULR-8's Emily Nantz was on the latest flight. Tune into KULR-8 News this week for more Big Sky Honor Flight coverage.
