Veteran grateful for honor flight

I was fortunate to be on the recent Honor Flight to Washington D.C. Kelli Jayroe and Stacey Kosiek, both of the Lakes of Litchfield, did a wonderful job. Bill Krzyle, Walter and Angela Kollet all did a magnificent job. I’m sure there were many more people involved in the planning, but these individuals I met personally.

We left Brightwater with a police and motorcycle escort, stopping by Ocean Bay Elementary School. The staff and students put on quite a performance! It’s nice to know our schools still teach “what” and “who” a veteran actually is. It is a pity and disgrace that our federal government can’t be as organized as this trip was!
