Steve Kinzle and his Honor Flight Guardian Brett Stout, a recent graduate of Southern Coffey County High School, display memorabilia from the U.S. Mint.

Any direction Roger Culler looked, the white gravestone markers at Arlington Cemetery were arranged in a perfectly straight line. The Changing of the Guard, an elaborate and precise ceremony, took his breath away.

?It?s amazing what they do at Arlington Cemetery,? the Colony man and Navy veteran recalled.

The visit to Arlington was just one part of a two-day visit in April to Washington, D.C., as part of Southern Coffey County High School?s Honor Flight. Culler was one of two local veterans who took part in the recent Honor Flight, which gives military veterans a chance to see national war memorials.
