SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

World War II veterans were honored Monday in a ceremony put on by the Concerned Veterans of America to commemorate the anniversary of the end of World War II.

The event was held on River Street near the World War II monument. Twenty-five veterans were honored during the ceremony to celebrate Victory over Japan Day, which ended the war. T

The Georgia Director of the Concerned Veterans of America explains how important it is to recognize these veterans.

"You know this is great because these guys are all heroes. Many of them got the metals over 60 years ago and this is a great chance just to pay tribute to their valor and bravery, said Georgia Director of Concerned Veterans of America, Tim Tyler.

Each of the veterans honored Monday received a copy of their campaign medal as well as the World War II victory medal.
