President Donald Trump hosted four World War II veterans at the White House on Thursday, keeping a promise made to 95-year-old Allen Jones last June.

“Beautiful afternoon in the Oval Office today with a few great American HEROES!” Trump tweeted Thursday afternoon, along with a video showing his June conversation with Jones.

“I’m going to be 95 years of age on April 11 of next year,” the retired sergeant told the president while appearing with him at a Kansas City VFW event in June. “Hopefully, you will allow me to bring my family into the Oval Office to meet you.”

The president responded with an enthusiastic “Yes!”

Fast forward to Thursday, April 11, and Jones joined centenarians Floyd Wigfield, Sidney Walton and Paul Kriner inside the Oval Office for a visit with Trump. Wigfield even reportedly won a promise from Trump for a ride aboard Air Force One back to the United States after June’s annual D-Day ceremony.

“We’ll work that out,” the president told Wigfield. “You’ll like Air Force One.”

President Trump said the veterans were “great heroes, great warriors, highly respected,” from a time when “we knew how to win wars.”

      I am so relieved to see our President honoring our vets instead of using the people’s house as a flop house for the endless chain of has-been, dope smoking, gangster rap “entertainers”.

    My Dad was a former POW of the Germans during the last 14 months of WW2. The Greatest Generation will always be the best ever. Thank you President Trump.
