CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

It's not your everyday school bus.

This one's taking a group of World War II veterans to Washington, D.C.

It's called the "Honors Tour," and it gives veterans the chance to tour our nation's capitol, and get a look at museums and monuments that represent our country.

Students at Cape Central High School participated in a sendoff on Friday for the veterans.

The event included musical entertainment, as well as participation by area law enforcement and emergency service personnel.
