WWII Vets honored in Washington D.C.
Three Petersburg WWII veterans returned from Washington, D.C. earlier this month where they toured the city and its war memorials as part of a national Honor Flights Program.
Gerald Lind, 88, who served in the Air Force on crash boats and rescued downed pilots along the Aleutian Islands, said he and the other 49 veterans were well received.
"The fun part for me was we were treated like we were the kings of the world," Lind said. "It's unbelievable to be greeted and cheered and clapped and pushed around."
He was impressed by the Changing of the Guard at Arlington National Cemetery.
