WASHINGTON (KOSA) - Friday morning the Permian Basin Honor Flight visited Arlington National Cemetery where several gold star families, families who have lost loved ones in the service, were honored with a wreath-laying ceremony

It was an emotional morning as the Honor Flight took part in a special ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery.

The gravesites of several Permian Basin veterans were visited, some laid flowers at the headstones or just observed a moment of silence.

Among those buried at Arlington are three of the four veterans who were killed in Midland when a train struck their parade float.

This November will be the tenth anniversary of the fatal train wreck.

The Honor Flight will visit Arlington National Cemetery again on Saturday.
