WFMY News 2 has teamed up with Rotary District 7690 on a service project to say thank you to the men and women who served in World War II.

We are planning to be part of a D-DAY Honor Trip on Friday, June 6, to honor Triad veterans with a trip to the National D-Day Memorial in Bedford, Va.

There are very few moments that changed the course of our world, but the D-Day invasion of Normandy, France, is definitely one of them. This year will be the 70th anniversary of the invasion.

WFMY News 2 begins coverage Tuesday leading up to the trip to Bedford in June.

The trip is free.
