Tribute To veterans. Finally!

This movie is about the true American Heroes who survived World War 2, and the wonderful volunteers who accompanied these old men...and women...to Washington to visit the memorials that honor them. It will bring tears to your eyes as you see these magnificent soldiers, seamen, and pilots coming to THEIR tears as they are guided around. It was an honor to watch!
