Honor Flight veterans visit Arlington National Cemetery

A quiet morning at Arlington National Cemetery marked the second day of the honor flight trip in Washington D.C.

Upon arriving veterans were given the opportunity to walk the sloping hills around the Memorial Amphitheater, just part of the more than 624-acre cemetery where veterans and so many others are laid to rest.

"I have some relatives buried here, so it's important," says Gutzman.

Gutzman served in World War II from 1944 to 1946 as a corporal in the infantry.

He like many others, were almost at a loss for words at seeing the thousands of graves representing so many years of hard work and sacrifice for our nation. "Mystifying, ya," says Gutzman describing his experience.

Korean War veteran Robert J. Mitchell says, "there are a lot of good people here, I just went to see Audie Murphy's grave." Of course all of the Texans had to visit 1st Lieutenant Audie Murphy's grave. He was a Lieutenant in the Army and went on to become a Major in the Army National Guard later on. Murphy is considered one of the conflict's most decorated heroes.
