Clete Heidbreder touches the flag of a fallen comrade at the World War II Memorial. He was part of a group of veterans from central Missouri who were flown to the capital to see the memorial. As the number of World War II veterans drops by nearly 1,000 per day, the Honor Flight Network is trying to ensure that veterans get to see the memorial.
