Valdosta - Over 100 veterans from South Georgia are preparing to visit the memorial meant to honor them.

They will fly from Valdosta to Washington D.C. Saturday morning to visit the World War Two Memorial and the Tomb of the Unknown.

The trip will be the first for all the veterans and completely free thanks to donations from the community.

The project was started nine weeks ago by veterans Bert Powell and Buddy Johnson and so far has raised over 100 thousand dollars.  "There's something very special about this organization down here because it's the only one headed up by a WWII veteran. Bert Powell actually was involved in the planning for the D-Day invasion," says Earl Morse, the President and Founder of the Honor Flight.

They are planning a second flight to leave at the end of the summer.  WALB will air a special report on the Honor Flight Wednesday May 23rd.
