Return WWII heroes to Pearl Harbor

Forever Young Senior Veterans of Alabama is working to grant 4 local WWII veterans their wishes to return to Pearl Harbor in May. Major, John, Bill, and Otis all have the desire to visit the USS Arizona in Pearl Harbor to pay their respects to their lost brothers, and we have a trip scheduled for May 3rd. However, we are short on funds! We still need $10,000 to help grant their wishes, and we are running out of time. Sadly, we are losing our WWII veterans at the rate of 400 a day. (Major is 101 years old!) All funds raised will go directly to their trip costs, and anything extra will go to granting other senior veterans' wishes. Please help if you can and please share with your friends, and perhaps even your company if they support veterans' causes. Help us get the word out! You can find out more information about Forever Young Senior Veterans of Alabama at You can also follow us on Facebook, and if you'd like to volunteer with our organization, feel free to send us a message. THANK YOU for your support! Forever Young Senior Veterans is a 501c(3) non-profit organization.
