Vets receive warm welcome after D.C. visit

Colorado service members greet veterans as they deplane Sept. 16, 2013, at the Denver International Airport. The 124 veterans were returning from a trip to Washington where they saw the monuments constructed in their honor. Honor Flight Northern Colorado offers free trips to the district for World War II and Korean War veterans, as well as Purple Heart recipients from any war.
