It was an emotional day for many former servicemen and women at the Illinois Veteran's Home in Quincy.
Chicago organization Pillars of Honor brought the original model of the Washington DC World War Two memorial to the Veterans home Saturday.
The group started bringing the model to towns after realizing that some veterans would never be able to see the DC monument.
The model is currently on tour through several Midwestern cities.
