A Veterans Day celebration in Queens recognizes those who served our country. 

The Holliswood Center for Rehabilitation and Healthcare broke out the balloons and tunes Friday to honor 30 veterans who live there.

Despite the festivities, some honorees told us the celebration still brings back sad memories.

"I had a good bunch of guys that went, though, and some of them didn't come back," said Korean War Vet John Hanna.  

Staff at the rehab also handed out medals and certificates to those who served.
