WEB EXTRAS: Touching videos of veterans' visit to DC

Posted:

WASHINGTON D.C. (WVVA) - The above WVVA.com-exclusive videos were captured by WVVA's Josh Frketic as he accompanied the Denver Foundation and a bus load of area veterans to the nation's capital for the 2013 Always Free Honor Flight.

The annual event allows area military veterans from as far back as World War II the opportunity to see the landmarks and memorials in Washington and to visit with our state's lawmakers on Capitol Hill.

Some are able to see the memorials dedicated to them and those they fought alongside in person for the first time.

Most importantly, the trip serves as a much-deserved 'thank you' to our veterans the sacrifices they made to serve their country and fight for our freedoms.
