Students at Fort Rucker’s Non-commissioned officer Academy are giving back.
Tuesday they presented the Wiregrass Honor Flight with a $500 check to help fund future trips to Washington DC.
Former Ozark Mayor Bob Bunting told the students about the amazing experience these World War II veterans have had visiting the memorial built in their honor, Arlington National Cemetery, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the Lincoln Memorial.
"A couple students had come up with the idea to give that money to charity so I thought this was a deserving charity, it benefits our veterans and you know it makes a statement that we didn't forget what they did for us," says Sgt. 1st Class Christopher Doss.
Bunting says they'll plan another Honor Flight in September if enough veterans sign up.
