Warriors to Washington return to Erie

Local News

ERIE, Pa. – Members of Warriors to Washington are back in Erie.

Twenty-five area veterans and some family members left Friday for Washington, D.C., for the third annual Warriors to Washington trip.

While in the nation’s capital, the veterans made several stops including visits to the National Archives, the Capitol building and the Pentagon.

One of the stops included Arlington National Cemetery where a wreath was placed on the Tomb of the Unknowns.

“It kind of renewed our faith in our country and what we do as veterans and going to Arlington and laying a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknowns is a very profound experience for all veterans,” Greg Henning, vice president of Warriors to Washington, said.

Those who planned the Warriors to Washington trip said this trip is a way to give back to the veterans who signed up to serve after the 9/11 attacks.
