Heroes Flight: On assignment in Washington D.C.

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

24 veterans from World War II boarded a Heroes Flight for Washington DC Thursday morning. Brookshires is sponsoring the event for the 5th year.

The group of veterans was all smiles as they gathered to get on the bus. They were meeting new and old friends and sharing war stories with each other. They will visit the WW II Memorial, the Korean and Vietnam Memorials, the Marine and Air Force Memorials, Arlington National Cemetery, the US Capitol, the Martin Luther King Memorial, and more.

It's the first trip to these sites for many of these veterans, so it is expected to be very poignant and emotional. KSLA News 12's Pat Simon will join them and bring you the special moments as these members of the Greatest Generation visit various memorials and monuments telling stories and honoring their comrades.
