MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A hero's sendoff Wednesday from Mid-South veterans--now on a life-changing journey. Patriot Guard riders escorted the veterans, mostly from World War II from Bellevue Baptist to the airport Wednesday morning. They will fly to Belgium and France, many of them revisiting the battle grounds where they fought 7 decades ago--most have never been back.

"The people, last few years have really come out in support of world war II veterans and I appreciate it so very very much," The forever young senior veterans group funds the trips for the veterans. They say it's closure for many veterans who are still impacted to this day by their experiences in combat.
