They were given free admission to the Nebraska State Fair and were honored in many ways once they got there. The fair had a parade, a ceremony and patriotic live music by a fellow vet.
It's a day officials dedicate to veterans each year and the vets say it really shows appreciation and support from the state.
"For the fair to do something for them and just to dedicate a whole day to them it just lets any veterans, not just in the state but all around the world who comes here, know that our state really cares about our veterans and our service members," US Navy Veteran Justin Kane said. "For the state to do this, that's huge."
This wasn't the only tribute to our veterans the fair had, they also had a memorial all week in the Nebraska building for those who did not make it home.
