MEDICAL LAKE, Wash. -- Soldiers who never received military honors when they died finally received them Saturday afternoon.

Around four hundred people showed up for the ceremony at the Washington State Veterans Cemetery.  Organizers said it was the biggest turn out they had ever had.

The Military paid tribute to 73 people who died and never had the military burial they earned.  All of the men were veterans of World War II, Korea or Vietnam.
