He's a 95-year-old Navy veteran who served in World War II and he's running through Mobile, again!

Ernie Andrus is running coast to coast raising money for the LST 325 ship memorial which is a World War II era Naval landing ship used by the US Navy and Greek Navy.

Andrus is hoping to raise enough money to bring the ship back to Normandy this year for the 75th anniversary of D-Day. 

This isn't Ernie's first run through Mobile. We interviewed him in 2016 while running through the Port City and we wish him the best as he runs toward his goal.
