Veterans from the QCA traveled to Washington, D.C., to see historic sites on the 53rd Honor Flight of the Quad Cities. Eight women boarded the flight to the nation’s capitol, the most the flight has ever taken. Local 4’s Blake Hornstein introduced us to one veteran stationed in the area for eight years as a court reporter, during a time when women were not given the same respect as men.
