GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – There is a new way to salute aging war heroes as we mark this year’s Veteran’s Day.
An organization called Honor Everywhere is bringing the memorial to ailing servicemen through virtual reality.
Veterans can visit the National World War Two Memorial in Washington, D.C. by putting on 3D goggles.
The experience is moving, as the memories are still fresh for many, 70 years later.
“I think about the people that paid the real price, boy I tell you, they’re real heroes” said Army veteran Joseph Cook.
For this year’s Veteran’s Day, the group is adding a virtual reality tour of the Vietnam War.
