Steve Rooney, center, of Sacramento and 15 other Korean War veterans were honored before Thursday night's Sacramento River Cats game.

As an Air Force P-6 pilot, Rooney dropped smoke bombs that helped artillery targeting and also assisted ground troops as a spotter. The 60th anniversary of the conflict's end is this weekend.
