LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11)—Veterans who went to D.C. on Friday returned in the evening to Louisville International Airport.

More than a thousand people packed the airport to welcome home the more than a dozen soldiers who made the trip.

They boarded a plane earlier in the day to go to the capital and tour the Capitol on the 70th Anniversary of D-Day.

These more than a dozen veterans are from World War II and the Korean War and were given the gift of the Honor Flight.

While the group was in D.C. they visited the World War II Memorial, the Korean War Veterans Memorial and the Iwo Jima Memorial.

The trip was paid for by Ford Motor Company.
