Chicago Honor Flight photo.

A Sandwich veteran is among those participating in Honor Flight Chicago's first, all-female flight to Washington D.C. to highlight the contributions of women who are veterans. Operation HerStory is an all expense paid flight to Washington D.C. so the veterans can visit the nation's war memorials built in their honor.

Jane Moyers, of Sandwich, is among those chosen to take part in the historic flight on October 6.

Moyers heard about the flight and applied to be part of it. She is happy to have been selected.

Moyers is also one of just a few participants who will have their story collected and published as part of the event.

The event all happens in just one day. All costs for the trip are covered by Honor Flight Chicago which is funded by donations.

Correction: this story has been updated to show that the flight will be on October 6.
