Flight 20 left this a.m. at 8:00 a.m., they should be back in Knoxville around 8:00 p.m., if you want to do something nice for a veteran that did something nice for our country, step out to the airport around 7:45, shake the hands, slap the backs and thank as many of those veterans as you can for the things that they have done in service for our country.
