Northland veterans are back home after spending Saturday in Washington, D.C.

Eighty-five Minnesota and Wisconsin veterans took off on the seventh Honor Flight Northland Saturday morning. They spent the day visiting several veteran memorials, then they returned home in the evening to the support of friends and family.

World War II veteran Frank Settimi said they were welcomed with open arms.

"That was something you couldn't believe," Settimi said. "It was the same thing when we got into Washington, D.C. We were welcomed the same way. It was very surprising."
