World War II veterans were welcomed home to the Armed Forces Retirement Home yesterday following a special visit to the conflict’s memorial on the National Mall. A Marine band played, active military members saluted and many members of the community came out to wave flags and say thank you. Some of the WWII veterans were Home residents while others were flown in as part of the Honor Flights program.
