For 132 veterans a journey from Fort Dodge to Washington, D.C. and back was the trip of a lifetime.
The excursion on Saturday, Aug. 28, began before daylight and ended long after nightfall, but it was a good day for vets from 12 different counties along with support staff and volunteers.
Attendees had a chance to experience the Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam Wall, Korean War Memorial, World War II Memorial, Iwo Jima (Marine Corps) Memorial, The changing of the guard at Arlington National Cemetery, the Air Force Memorial and a 70-minute bus tour of Washington, D.C.
