NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A group of Nashville-area World War II veterans is getting a free flight to Washington, D.C., to visit the World War II memorial built in their honor.
The local veterans and their guardians will fly out of Nashville International Airport on Wednesday morning.
In Washington, buses will transport them to the World War II Memorial as well as other monuments, including the Vietnam and Korean War Memorials, the Air Force Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The group will fly back to Nashville on Wednesday night.
The trip is being coordinated by Music City Honor Flight, a Nashville nonprofit established to honor Tennessee's World War II veterans.
