Most Honor Flights visit the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and are one of the few groups allowed to bring a bus into the cemetery. If you've ever missed the bus, it's quite a hike and Cemetery is showing great respect for Honor Flight and its mission. I have joined Central Missouri Honor Flight several times and always with good result!
