Bolton, Robert

We would like to make a donation to Stars and Stripes Honor Flight in memory of my Uncle Bob, who was a World War II Veteran, and was fortunate to be on the Stars and Stripes Flight in October 2011. He left us on August 17, 2019, at the age of 97. The opportunity that your organization provided was very meaningful to him. The welcome home greeting at the airport was very moving, for both the trip participants, and those of us welcoming them home. I think the entire trip was something he remembered and was thankful for, for the remainder of his life. Thank you for everything you do for our Veterans.
Sheila and John Campbell
Bob was 21 when he served in the Army during World War II, from October 1942 through Christmas Eve 1945. He served as a medic and first aid man in the Philippines and Okinawa. The Sullivan veteran was awarded two Purple Hearts — one for an injury from a piece of shrapnel in his knee and another he could not recall. Bob also received two Bronze Star Medals for digging men out of trenches after a Japanese buzz bomb attack. “I dug a couple of them out by hand, and my (commanding officer) said I deserved a medal for that,” he said. In addition, his unit was awarded the Presidential Unit Citation, given to units of the United States Armed Forces, and those of allied countries, for extraordinary heroism in action against an armed enemy on or after Dec. 7, 1941— the date of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and start of America’s involvement in World War II.

He had heard much about the Honor Flight from Gene Schultz, a dear long-time friend whose son is married to Chris’s daughter, so they are also relatives). He was so humble - he did not feel he deserved this honor. He talked often about his Honor Flight and enjoyed looking at the pictures from the day.

Stern, Gerald

I first met Jerry at a Veteran’s Recognition Assembly at Oconomowoc High School in November 2018. Jerry was one of the guest speakers and gave an inspiring and memorable speech to the student body and veteran guests present. The last time I saw Jerry was at a spaghetti dinner hosted by the Arrowhead S.A.V.E (Survivors And Veterans Experience) Team and Student Senate in February 2019. As a guest speaker, he recounted his experiences and gave some excellent advice to all gathered there. What a wonderful man who served his country in the United States Navy as a patriot and exceptional educator! He will surely be missed. Rest in Peace and Godspeed Jerry!
