The Kincardine Air Cadets, Squadron 183, joined the 530 Squadron of Kitchener on a trip to Washington, D.C., and area, during the March Break.

The youth had a chance to visit some of the famous locations there, including the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson Memorial, plus memorials to the First and Second World Wars and the Vietnam War.

They also toured the International Spy Museum, the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, and the Smithsonian National History Museum.

The Cadets then travelled to neighbouring Virginia to see Arlington National Cemetery and the Korean War Memorial, and tour the U.S.S. Barry which is a destroyer class ship.

In addition, the group went to the National Archives where the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution are kept.

The trip wasn't all museums and tours, though. The Cadets also did one of those favourites among tourists - they went shopping!
