ROMULUS (CBS DETROIT) - Tears of joy were shed at Detroit Metro Airport on Monday, June 2 as Anna Mari Barile, a Delta Airlines employee sang The Star-Spangled Banner on the public address system in honor of World War II veterans.

The veterans were boarding a flight to Paris for the 70th anniversary of D-Day on June 6.

Bystander Alisa Vermeulen captured the scene on video and uploaded it to YouTube. Everyone in the gate area can be seen standing in respect.
