It was a very special weekend for one local Vietnam War veteran.
U.S. Army Warrant Officer C. Richard Bauer had the opportunity to visit the War Memorial in Washington D.C. on a special "Their Last Chance" Honor Flight.
That is a program that sends veterans on the trip who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness and who may not be able to go on an Honor Flight when it's time for their era to go.
Bauer told News10NBC about how thankful he was to be given the opportunity to take the trip to the nation's capital.
"I don't think there's any way in the world I could ever thank them for what they did for me, and then this group here, the same thing. It's just unreal. The whole thing is unreal,” said Bauer.
