LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - For the 39th and final time, former prisoners of war and veterans from the Korean War will reunite this summer in Louisville and they need help getting the word out.

The ex-POWs will be gathering from July 27 to August 3. The non-profit organization is attempting to raise $5,000 to put up a billboard next to Louisville International Airport to welcome these distinguished Americans.
