Local veterans proceed with monument visit despite government shutdown
Snap-On Company sponsoring Korean and Vietnam veterans trip
MILWAUKEE-Jim Bosch has seen the monument to Vietnam Veterans on TV. But he knows seeing it up close and perhaps finding the names of some army buddies is a chance he'll never have again.
" I've never been out to Washington D.C. before," Bosch told CBS 58 News, "so this is a chance of a lifetime, for me and my wife, to go out there and see the monuments."
Fellow workers were joined by former and current military members and civilian supporters to form a line of honor that was several feet deep during the send off at Mitchell International Airport.
CBS 58's Michele McCormack has more.
