WASHINGTON, DC - Last week, 81 World War II, Korean, and Vietnam War veterans flew to Washington, D.C. free of charge to see the memorials that stand in their honor. Veterans from our area left from Wausau on the Never Forgotten Honor Flight.
It can be a challenge to convince the veterans to participate. They're humble and many feel like there are plenty of other veterans who are more deserving of the opportunity. One veteran who took some convincing is Dan Writz of Abbotsford.
"I just felt I never was qualified to go," Writz said.
