CEDAR RAPIDS - Veterans from around Eastern Iowa had that one chance in a life time Tuesday when they flew from Cedar Rapids to Washington D.C. to visit the monuments and memorials.

"Went to Arlington Cementary, we had a tour of Washington D.C.. It was really fantasic" Donald Harlan of Cedar Rapids explained.

Robert Beach of Cedar Rapids said he was "impressed" when he got to see the World War II Memorial for the first time.

Dean Moel of Sutliff said that he lost a lot of buddies over in the war and that seeing the cementary made it all hit home.

Moel explained that he never felt like he needed anything but now that the World War 2 memorial is there, "it will be there for a long time."

After seeing some of his fellow vets in wheelchairs Arthur Rinderkneckt, Atkins, realized just how fast time has pasted and how much has changed in the world. He says that the United States is still the best place in the world and that he is proud that he helped in maintaining its freedoms.

Family, friends, and supporters wrapped around the waiting area at the Eastern Iowa Airport to welcome the veterans back home.
