Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg host WWII memorial visit for veterans

250 World War II veterans, who served in the Pacific, were flown to Washington, D.C., on "Honor Flights" to visit the World War II memorial for the first time. Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg spoke at the memorial, timed for the March 14 premiere of "The Pacific," HBO's new 10-part miniseries. (Anna Uhls/The Washington Post)
