This Veterans Day will be special for a local World War II veteran.

Beau Bancroft, 89, is getting his wish to travel to Pensacola, Fla. to fly on one of the planes he used to train other pilots.

Bancroft was honored Monday night at a ceremony at the Chicago History Museum last night. The group "Jeremy Bloom's Wish of a Lifetime" is sending Bancroft to the naval air station where he served.
