Three World War II veterans from Pueblo are visiting the National World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. for the first time this week.
The Pueblo Chieftain reports that Art Urbina and Carl Califano, who are leaving Monday, and Cliff Hibpshman, who will leave Friday, all live at the same assisted living facility, Wynwood. Staff there worked with the Wish of a Lifetime Foundation and Honor Flight of Southern Colorado to arrange the trips.
Urbina, who is 87, says he couldn't pass up a chance to see the memorial.
