Franzke, Charles

Charles (Chuck) was a good friend and a national treasure to the Stars and Stripes Honor Flight community. I worked with Chuck on fundraising and community events at schools, retail establishments and more. He was super-patriotic and loved his country. I visited Chuck and his wife Beverly several times at their home in Waukesha. My "5-minute visit" turned into over an hour of conversations. Chuck gave me the grand tour of his military memoriabilia, not skipping any detail. I was honored to attend his 100th Birthday tribute at his home in December during a snowstorm. It didn’t phase him at all. Chuck will be remembered by all whom his life touched. Watching him dance with Beverly at the Stars and Stripes Gala in November 2021 was a high point of the event. Rest in Peace my friend and until we meet again at the Pilot’s lounge and in the ranks in paradise. I salute you one last time. Godspeed!

This donation is being given in memory of Doug Losey who served in the Navy during the Vietnam War and also in honor of my son-in-law Daniel, who surprised his dad with this trip. Prior to Doug passing away three years ago, he along with his son Daniel were able to be on board the Honor Flight that left from Milwaukee. The two of them talked about this day, how emotional the whole trip was and the cheers that welcomed them back when they landed. The impact this trip had on my son-in-law will be with him forever as not too long after this trip his father passed away. Daniel volunteers his time helping this amazing organization and appreciates the sacrifices made by our past and present , men and women who serve our country. He also makes, paints and sells American Flags made from wooden pallets. Every dollar made, about $500 has been donated to Stars and Stripes Honor Flight so other veterans might be able to share the same experience like he and his dad did.
