It was a hero’s homecoming for some World War II Veterans in Topeka.

Friday,  the 35th Infantry Division veterans of World War II visited the Museum of the Kansas National Guard.

About 20 veterans came out along with their families.

The group was able to check out items in the museum and also talk about what they remembered from World War II.

“And it all comes back. and when you see the good men that are still with us, we are losing thousands of men a month of World War II, but, some of us are still here and still digging in and certainly happy to see my friends again,” WWII Veteran Dick O’Brien said.
