  • Day In D.C.

    WASHINGTON, D.C. - For more than 130 Korean War veterans from western Iowa, last Wednesday’s Honor Flight trip to Washington, D.C., rekindled some old, but not forgotten memories and emotions.

    The veterans spent the day in our nation’s capital, touring the city and visiting military memorials, most notably the Korean War Memorial, built on their behalf and the more than 33,000 Americans who lost their lives and the 103,000-plus who were injured between 1950-1953 in what’s often been called the “Forgotten War.”
