A non-profit based in Louisville is recruiting Kentucky’s World War Two veterans for a special trip to Washington D.C. 

The Honor Flight Bluegrass Chapter is looking for at least 60 veterans from south central and west Kentucky to visit their memorials on D-Day.  The trip on June 5-6 is free and open to all World War Two veterans from every branch of the military. 

Ninety-two-year-old Charles Adams of Bowling Green took the trip about ten years ago.

"I enjoyed my flight completely. I got to see things I would have never seen before," said Adams. "If you know a veteran or are a veteran, don't be bashful about signing up for this because you deserve it."

A Purple Heart medal given to a former officer assigned to the 101st Airborne Division in World War II is being returned to Fort Campbell, Ky. The medal was mailed to the U.S. Embassy in London without a return address in July, according to the Military Order of the Purple Heart.
