NASHVILLE, Tenn. - About 100 Tennessee World War II veterans and their guardians spent Tuesday in Washington, D.C., visiting the World War II Memorial and other memorials.

Several Marshall County veterans of World War II have taken the trip in previous years, returning home with memories of the nation's capitol and the thanks of a grateful nation. The flights are coordinated by Music City Honor Flight, a Nashville organization established to honor Tennessee's World War II veterans.

"The Airport Authority is proud to partner with the Music City Honor Flight and show appreciation to our veterans for their unforgettable service," said Raul Regalado, president and CEO of the Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority.
