Casket cart for fallen heroes dedicated, presented to Southwest Airlines

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- A Vietnam veteran presented Southwest Airlines on Tuesday, October 28th with a specialty casket cart intended to transport fallen heroes to their final resting place.

The specialized cart is meant to honor those who risked their lives to protect freedom here in the U.S.

The dedication ceremony for the cart took place at Mitchell International Airport.

"There's an old saying that some soldiers gave some, which would be myself, and there's others who gave all, which would be their lives, so this is the least we can do to honor them," Vietnam veteran Richard Kalashian said.
