A World War II veteran had a street sign dedicated to him on the Southwest Side Saturday morning.
Eighty-nine year old Hank Rutkowski was a prisoner of war for a year after his plane was shot down over Europe in 1944.
Everyone on the plane survived - except for one soldier, who's parachute didn't open.
Rutkowski has gone to mass at St. Bruno Catholic Church on the Southwest Side every December 6 for the last seventy years to pray for that soldier.
And that's where the street sign will hang with his name - on a section of 48th Street and Harding Avenue.
Rutkowski called the event a huge honor, but noted that it's important to honor those that didn't come back from the war.
