Airman Ron Gustafson, 83; Marine Ernie Garcia, 82; and Marine Paul Nobles, 68, enjoy a hometown salute as they return to Pagosa Springs after participating in Honor Flight Northern Colorado’s trip to Washington, D.C. The veterans were escorted into town by law enforcement, and eighth-grade students from Pagosa Springs Middle School were joined by locals to welcome them home.
