Veterans Honored of July 10th
On July 10, 2019, three Knights (and one spouse) – Grant Buehrig, Bob Balog, and Barbara and Joe Skowronski – were part of Honor Flight Chicago welcoming 104 Veterans of WW2, Korea and Vietnam to Washington D.C. and an all-day tour of the Memorials along the Mall. There were three WW2 Veterans, 19 from the Korean War and 82 from Vietnam – the oldest was 92 and the youngest was 63! The Veterans were greeted at the WW2 Memorial by the former Secretary of State, General Colin Powell, and Congressmen from around the Chicago area – I am sure that the Congressmen got an earful. Many Veterans agreed that given the welcome and recognition that they received where ever they went that this was one of the best days of their lives.
