Honor Flight Northwest Ohio has scheduled a special flight Oct. 23 for about 150 veterans of the Vietnam War.
The flight is sponsored by an anonymous donor, a World War II veteran, as an add-on to the regular 2012 schedule that ends in September.
Vietnam veterans will be selected for the flight based on their date of application.
The flights will depart from and return to the Grand Aire hangar, a mile west of the main terminal at Toledo Express Airport, at 11777 W. Airport Service Rd., near Swanton.
The general public is welcome to attend a send-off event from about 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and a welcome-home event from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
