KALAMAZOO, Mich. — Kalamazoo teenager Alice Kraatz has a big goal. She wants to send an entire Honor Flight of solely Vietnam Veterans. It'd be the first of it's kind in the state.

She's been raising money for the last few months. This weekend, Alice got some big news.

The Dick and Betsy DeVos Foundation will match the next $20,000 she raises, dollar for dollar.

“Yes, I'm really excited," Kraatz said. "It makes me feel so honored to give these people the opportunities that they deserved 50 years ago."

They're hoping to send the flight out this summer. Find out how to help donate here.
