Fort Polk soldier gets chance of lifetime in trip in P51D airplane

It was an experience Sgt. 1st Class Jason Deming said he couldn’t say no to. “This is bucket-list stuff right here,” he said. Deming was referring to taking a ride in a P-51D Mustang World War II fighter airplane, named “Charlotte’s Chariot” as part of a Wounded Warrior Association (WWA) trip to Houston, Texas, to allow Deming and other wounded warriors to interact with one another and also experience one-in-a-lifetime activities.
