Many special moments and memories were shared with 109 WWII veterans and 71 guardians on September 18, 2010. The J.M. Smucker Co. sponsored our flight, providing 30 of their employees as guardians. This flight had our oldest veteran to date, Mr. Prosser at 98 years young and the youngest guardian, Taylor Hallworth at 14 years old (accompanied by her mother, Kelly). We had the largest group of women who served- nine total. We had 17 veterans who were over 90 years of age. The J.M. Smucker Co provided us with “Uncrustables” for snacks throughout the day. They were enjoyed by everyone, right Max?
For all the seasoned staff at Honor Flight CAK we would like to wish Dr. Lori Drumm and her husband Mark Leibsla good luck on their new adventure to Iowa. The Veterans Hospital is getting the best of the best of physicians, and I know the veterans would agree! You will be greatly missed! Thank you so much for being a part of our organization!
