INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WTHR) - World War II veteran, 92-year-old Warren Perney, died last week, just days after he took part in an Honor Flight.

The Honor Flight program flies World War II veterans to Washington, DC to see the memorial dedicated to them before they die.

"I saw the real thing, but I haven't seen the memorial and I would like to," Perney said during a live interview on with NBC affiliate WTHR before he boarded his Honor Flight one week ago.

"That was something he wanted to do, and he did it," said Jean Perney, Warren's widow. "Very important."

In what way; closure? Jean responded, "Yes, it was, right."
