CHARLOTTE, NC (WSOC) — Members of the UNC Charlotte Marching Band are getting ready for a trip to France — the only North Carolina school ever invited to represent the United States — to help mark the 74th anniversary of D-Day, the day the Allied forces invaded France to push back the Nazis in World War II.

UNCC band members were honored as they packed for the trip, which they consider a great honor.
