Local business owner Glenn Fleming wanted to send a gunner friend on a special trip.

Will, like Glenn, is a veteran. Will, not like Glenn, is battling cancer.

Glenn tells KPEL he started a "Go Fund Me" account to raise funds so that they could get Will on a B-17 flight, to have a little enjoyment.

The fund has raised so much money that now Fleming wants to do something incredible for other veterans facing difficulties.

The "Raising Funds To Be A Gunner" project has now been born.

Glenn Fleming can be heard on "Acadiana's Morning News" every Friday at 7:10 a.m. during "Firearms Friday".
