WASHINGTON, D.C. - It's been more than 60 years since the veterans on the Big Sky Honor Flight served in World War II, but on Monday morning they finally saw their memorial at our nation's capitol.
It was a moment many of them waited years for and an experience they were happy to share together.
"It's just incredible. I never dreamed of being here," said Billings veteran Michael Rhodes. "So I guess you could say this is a dream come true."
From there, the veterans toured Arlington National Cemetery where they watched the Changing of the Guard Ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
After Arlington Cemetery the group travelled to the Iwo Jima Memorial.
The sightseeing-packed trip of D.C. will wrap up Monday afternoon with a driving tour, including the White House.
