WWII vets take flight after D-Day anniversary

WWII Veterans fly in B-52 Bomber

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Veterans got a chance to get back in the sky Friday, one day after the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

The Kentucky Veterans Program Trust Fund sponsored flights on a World War II bomber at Bowman Field.

Homer Denham, 93, was 18-years-old when he enlisted and fought in WWII.

“I feel a connection, I also felt a connection when I was in service as being one family,” Denham said. “It’s a feeling that I’ll carry with me the rest of my life.”
