UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS -- Some military alums received special honors Friday.
UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS -- Some military alums received special honors Friday. 14 were inducted into the UI's Hall of Fame.

State Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka was one of them. The tribute recognizes those who had successful careers after being in the university's R.O.T.C. program. It's been around for 140-years.

Many graduates had never been back to the UI or been recognized before now. Organizers say it creates a connection between the alums and the cadets following in their footsteps.

Each inductee's picture will hang at the Armory building. Alumni and cadets are marching together in the Illini's homecoming parade.
