140 female veterans gathered in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday and made history by participating in the first women-only Honor Flight.

The Honor Flight Network, which provides veterans with free flights so that they can tour the war memorials in the nation's capital, said its first all-female trip was organized with help from the Department of Veterans Affairs.

The group of Ohio-area women visited several sites specific to their service, including a special presentation at the Women in Military Service Memorial at Arlington National Cemetery.
