Honor Flight Rochester gives many veterans in the area a special opportunity, but for the Bergeron brothers, it was even more special.
The Bergeron Brothers- Larry, Lou and Roland- were all on Honor Flight Rochester 51, and had all served in the Korean war together. The organization took them on an all-expenses-paid trip to see the War Memorials in Washington DC.
"So there's three of us and it was just exciting," said Larry, "it really was."
"This feels like it was well worth every bit of it," he said, "I wouldn't replace any of it."
Roland, meanwhile, was emotional:
It's hard not to wipe your eyes," he said, "especially to see the little ones, how they come out and all that. It's great."
A fourth Bergeron brother, who was in the Navy, has already passed away.
News10NBC's Rebecca Leclair was the emcee for Sunday's event, the final mission of 2016.
