TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-- World War II veterans trying to visit their memorial in Washington amid the shutdown have drawn a lot of attention.

The Republican National Committee announced it would pay to keep that monument open for the next 30 days. That meant this group was able to get a look.

Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins and Senator Jerry Moran helped host a group of 85 WWII veterans with the Heartland Honor Flight.

Veterans from Topeka, Leavenworth, Lawrence and several Missouri towns took the trip.
