Come Support Local Vets! by David Tate

As part of our "Heroes From The Heart Of Virginia" series that runs through all of next week, ABC 13 is teaming up with The Exchange Club of Lynchburg for a donation drive to help World War II veterans realize a special trip.

On Saturday, December 10, you will be able to find members of the ABC 13 team at Kroger's locations in Forest and on Timberlake Road trying to rustle up some donations for these vets.

In the end, we will be sending select vets to check out the World War II memorial in Washington D.C., which for many, is a once in a lifetime trip.

So I urge you to joins us out at one of these two Kroger's locations next Saturday. If you want to catch up with this old vet, you will be able to find me at the Forest location starting at 9 a.m.
