Honor Flight will fly South Georgia Veterans to Washington D.C. for the day to see the World War II Memorial and the tomb of the unknown.
But first it had to be completely funded by donations from the community.
Already they've raised enough money to charter a plane and enough interest to fill all of it's seats with veterans who've dreamed of seeing the sights, but never had the chance.
