Justin Peterson was only in fourth-grade and nine-years-old when he decided to raise $600 to send a veteran back to Washington D.C. on the Inland Northwest Honor Flight, an organization that sends veterans to Washington D.C. in honor of their service to their country. But that goal stretched far beyond $600. Peterson is now twelve and has raised over $57,000 to support veterans.
