VNL Special: Veterans Honor Flight of ND/MN

FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) It's a mission of thanks! A chance to honor the veterans of Minnesota and North Dakota for all of their sacrifices.

Valley News Live had the honor of traveling with veterans from the region during the latest Veterans Honor Flight of ND/MN to see the memorials dedicated to their service in the nation's capital.

Each trip includes around 85 veterans from the Red River Valley. The group includes veterans from WWII, the Korean War and Vietnam War.

Every trip leaves early one day and returns home the next night late.

It's a whirlwind adventure that includes stops at memorials and monuments, a banquet and several chances for the veterans to talk and bond with each other.

After looking at the video from the last two trips, Lisa Budeau and Mike Morken decided to share their stories with you once again, in a special half hour special.
