The local Honor Flight Committee plans to kick off their big fundraising effort on Veterans Day but they are currently looking for WWII veterans who would like to make the flight to D.C.
According to the Alabama Dept. of Veteran Affairs, there are approximately 17,000 WWII veterans living in Alabama.
Prattville Mayor Jim Byard encourages those who know WWII vets who would like to make the trip to the war monument or for more information to call the Prattville Area Chamber of Commerce at (334)365-7392.
For those wishing to make a contribution to the Prattville/South Alabama Chapter of Honor Flight, checks should be made payable and mailed to:
