Georgia veterans are streaming through Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport to be home for Christmas.

The Christmas holiday is one of the busiest for the Atlanta airport, with 80,000 expected to pass through security check points on Sunday.

ExploreUSO volunteers were on hand to give a warm welcome to Georgia veterans, along with many Georgia families.
