MOBILE, Alabama -

It was a hero's welcome Wednesday night as World War 2 Veterans made it back to Mobile Regional Airport.

"I think it is awesome, this is awesome!," said a woman.

A group of juniors from St. Paul's Episcopal School decided to welcome home the vets. 30 students packed Mobile Regional Airport to say thanks.

"We came out to support the veterans it's so wonderful to come out and support them," said a student.

Even at the back of the crowd flags waved as each veteran made his way through the building.

"I'm excited, I'm so glad there is such a good turnout it's just wonderful, absolutely wonderful," said a woman.

Thousands of people showed up early in the evening to get their spot in line to welcome these hero's home.
