Some of the veterans who served our country got a special view of Sunday's Vikings game.

Starkey Hearing Technologies invited a group of veterans to watch the Vikings from their suite on the field at U.S. Bank Stadium.

Richard Edge, 95, and Doris Edge, 96, of St. Paul, were among the veterans in attendance.

The couple both served in World War II and have been married for more than 60 years.

Richard served in the Army, fought in the Battle in the Bulge and recieved a Purple Heart, while Doris served in the Navy.

"It was the highlight of my life," Doris Edge said.
