How are World War 2 veterans from the German (nazi) army treated in Germany?

I'm assuming there are many veterans of World War 2 from Germany that are still alive. There are so many in the US, and they are all called heroes by us. What do the German people think of their own veterans from the same war? Are they treated as heroes or are they not even acknowledged because they were on the losing side (and did many evil things)?

I know they probably aren't celebrated as we do here (with all veterans, not just WW2), but are they celebrated or acknowledged at all? Do Germans want to forget about them and what they did?
