WILLMAR -- Chet Curtis had only one thing to remember as he packed for an overnight trip to Washington, D.C.

"When I talked to my daughter about it, she told me not to forget to pack an extra handkerchief,'' said Curtis, 88, of Willmar.

He quickly added that he knows he will need it. Curtis is among 11 World War II veterans from Kandiyohi County on their way to tour the National World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C.
