MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Alabama Gov. Bob Riley will accompany 88 veterans of World War II on an Honor Flight to Washington on Wednesday.
The governor will serve as a guardian for three of the veterans during the one-day trip to the World War II Memorial and Arlington National Cemetery. The group will leave Mobile at 7:15 a.m. and return about 7:30 p.m.
Riley says it will be a special day that he will never forget. The Honor Flight Network raises money and organizes volunteers to arrange trips for World War II veterans to see the memorial.
