flew in from Southeast Florida for the 70th anniversary on a very special flight this afternoon. wdbj7 Anchor Melissa Gaona was there when they arrived. Tonight she's live from the memorial in Bedford. It's called the Honor Flight. This is a program that transports our veterans to memorials dedicated in their honor, free of charge. Today, 64 D-Day veterans, and 64 guardians were flown to Roanoke to celebrate the 70th anniversary at the National D-Day Memorial in Bedford tomorrow. When they got off the plane, they were shocked to see hundreds of people lining the airport. People were singing songs, screaming thank you, and shaking their hands. This veteran says he had no idea people were even going to show up. "Unbelievable, the thanked me a hundred times for my service when i served, it's unbelievable, I'm just amazed." But that wasn't the end. When they walked outside, there was even more support. a high school band, other veterans saluting, and even children showed up to say thank you. Many veterans were brought to tears by the outpour of support they received today. i talked to one veteran and he tells me 70 years ago, after the war, they simply came home and got back to regular life. We'll hear why this celebration is so special to him tonight at 11. Live in Bedford, Melissa Gaona, wdbj7.
