Belter, Rich

Rich, US Army, served in Korea and Vietnam in the late 60’s. Rich and I, along with my two sons had the privilege to be on the September 28, 2019 flight. Rich had never been to Washington to see the Monuments and Memorials dedicated to those who served. He contracted agent orange and died of cancer on July 24, 2020. Because of his condition, we were able to skip, if not, he would not have been able to see the Korean, Vietnam and other Memorials.

Gwen Weithaus
To a life well lived.
I had the honor and privilege of caring for John as a resident in our hospice/palliative unit at the VA Medical Center. His gentle nature and willingness to share stories and experiences touched many lives. HE was a living history lesson to many. He told me many times that his life changed when he and his daughter Jayne went on his Honor Flight. After that flight he became a presenter and shared his WWII experiences with schools and the public. I don’t believe in coincidences and within a month of his death SSHF was given the exciting news that FLIGHTS WOULD BE STARTING AGAIN IN AUGUST 2021. This would have made him so happy! I am a better person having known John.

Hanson, Ronald L

Ronnie served in Korea as an MP and on the Honor Guard. He went on Honor Flight on September 12,2015. It was an experience he never forgot. He was a man of few words,but he was so excited when he got off the plane in Milwaukee that night, that he didn’t stop talking for a long time. He commented many times that he never had an experience like that. "I must have shook 1,000 hands that day." Unfortunately, he passed away on June 6,2020. We thought it appropriate to support other veterans on their trip of a lifetime in honor of his trip.

We are coworkers of Jeni’s who’s dad passed away last week. This organization meant so much to my dad. He was a veteran having served during Vietnam. It was difficult for the men and women who returned home after the war because there was so much controversy. The Stars and Stripes organization provides an opportunity for these veterans to heal and be recognized for their service. My dad had attended over 50 homecomings to welcome these veterans home. He and I were scheduled for the April 2020 flight which was canceled due to the pandemic. Stars and Stripes organized a parade in 2020 which we attended and another in 2021 to ensure our veterans could be recognized while we waited for the flights to return. My dad didn’t make it for his flight so I am incredibly grateful for the parade.
Coworkers of Ken’s daughter Jeni O’Leary
Because of the pandemic in 2020, Kenny missed his Honor Flight. He was excited about going. He made it to 50 of the welcome home parades and couldn’t wait to experience it on the other side. Rest in peace Kenny. They guys will take it from here.

Smith Jr., James G

On Mother’s Day of 2019, my Dad and I had the opportunity to join the Honor Flight. My Dad was a Vietnam Vet. We were both honored and humbled by the experience. It was respectful and reverent. He was taken from us on March 18th 2021 after a terrible fall down a flight of stairs. It was a terrible time for us, but an easy decision where his Memorial funds should go to. He loved his country and he loved is family. He is truly missed. Thank you for letting us be part of this experience. Our hope that donation in my Father’s honor will allow others to join in the incredible experience.

Szafranski, John A.

John is one of the first hero’s in my life. He took me into his family when my own was falling apart. As an elementary school kid, he also introduced me to two of my life long loves - landscaping and projects with my hands. I would marvel at his manicured lawn and flower filled garden beds; at his shop full of tools and machines; at his fencing and the deck he built around the pool; and at his garage conversion where I watched hours of tv and played with Terri in the elevated Barbie wonderland he had built. Finally, John introduced me to what it meant to be a veteran, to have faught in the Vietnam War, and to love your country, and defend it. He is with God now, where there is no war, no pain, and plenty of fun projects.
Love, Anjou
