On a 98 degree day in early August 2007, a WOSU camera crew  – producer Mary Rathke, videographer Jason Perkins, and audio technician Phillip Park – shadowed 32 World War II veterans as they traveled to Washington D.C. to visit the WWII memorial. With help from Honor Flight, these seniors were given an all-expense paid trip of a lifetime.
