Men Take Honor Flight

Wence Nowak and his son, Paul Nowak stand before the Iwo Jima Marine Corps War Memorial. This flight was the 60th mission launched by the Old Glory Appleton hub since 2009. On this mission, there was a total of 89 veterans (88 men and one woman) from northeastern Wisconsin who represented all five military branches (Navy, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, and Air Force). Their ages ranged from the early 70’s to the middle 80’s. Each individual veteran usually has one assigned volunteer—a guardian that assists them throughout the day.
