LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)-- More than 400 veterans are traveling through Lafayette on their way to Washington D.C. from Wisconsin.

The VetsRoll program provides buses to take veterans to visit the Washington D.C. monuments built in their honor. Korean and Vietnam Veterans and Rosie the Riveters stopped at Faith Baptist Church.

Hundreds of veterans filed out of buses to stop in for a free breakfast provided by the Veterans of Foreign War.

Coordinator Cindy Troxell said this is a time to give veterans the respect they deserve.

"It's just so special to see these guys that didn't necessarily get honored when they came home the first time and so to just honor them and be a part of this special trip for them is just really awesome."
