There was a special homecoming for dozens of veterans returning from Washington, D.C. Hundreds lined the arrival concourse at Midway Airport Wednesday night to cheer 81 World War II veterans.

The veterans returned from a visit to the World War II memorial at the Capitol.

The trip to Washington was made possible by the group Honor Flight, which provides all-expense-paid trips for World War II veterans.
