This month marks 69 years since the end of World War II. Sunday, Hoosier veterans and their families reunited in downtown Indianapolis.

The second annual World War II Veterans Reunion was sponsored by Honor Flight - a non-profit that organizes veteran trips to Washington, D.C., to see the nation's memorials.

Hundreds of veterans, family members and honor flight volunteers met at the Indiana World War Memorial for music and conversation.

One of the vets who went was Woodrow Wilson Hairl, who was grateful to take his honor flight earlier this year.

"I had the chance to be there. I'm proud of it. And, I'm glad I was in America," said Hairl.

Honor Flight has three trips planned this fall - in September, October and November.
