Tuesday morning, an Honor Flight will ferry 136 Nebraska veterans to the nation's capital for a one-day visit to their past.
These veterans of the Korean War — often called the “Forgotten War” — will see their sacrifice and service honored in a weighty symbol: 100 tons of polished California granite and 19 stainless steel statues that form the Korean War Veterans Memorial.
