Some Chicago-area war veterans are on a special trip Wednesday.

Nearly 100 World War II veterans hopped on a one-day flight from Midway Airport to Washington, DC, to see the national memorial erected in their honor.

The trip was provided by Honor Flight Chicago. The organization has brought more than 2,000 war veterans to the nation's capital to see the World War II memorial and other monuments since 2008.
