EUGENE, Ore. – The March 28 episode of “NCIS” uses an Honor Flight for veterans to Washington, D.C., as a backdrop for a crime thriller. “When a Marine is murdered at a charitable event, an irritable war veteran must help solve the crime,” according to a description of the episode, which airs #LiveOnKVAL at 8 p.m.

The story is fictitious.

But this one is real:

Dozens of local veterans will soon be heading to the nation’s capital with the South Willamette Valley Honor Flight program.
