KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Forty-seven Veterans from the metro flew to Washington D.C. on Veterans Day to see their war memorials and monuments on Tuesday.

Honor Flight Kansas City, makes these trips possible for veterans at no cost to them.

The veterans visited the Air Force Memorial, World War II Memorial, Korean War Memorial, Vietnam War Memorial and The Marine Corps War Memorial.

They also watched the changing of the guards at The Tomb of the Unknowns, and two metro veterans laid a wreath at the tomb to honor veterans  from our area who died while serving our country.

The whirlwind trip lasted 16 hours, but their memories will last a lifetime.
