Barringer, James E.

James and I were on Bravo Flight of the April Stars and Stripes Honor Flight. I remember that we spoke several times about Our Army and Air Force experiences in Vietnam. I remember “Jimmy Bee” as a fun-loving guy, quick on the mutual “ribbing” we gave each other about our different services. He will definitely be remembered and I look forward to seeing him when we join the ranks of our brothers-in-arms. Godspeed James!

Bartosiak, Anthony

In April of last year Tony was on the 50th Honor Flight. It was an amazing experience him and his family. He had even commented that it was one of the most memorable experiences of his life. Prior to his passing, he had requested that any donations made in his memory be donated to Stars and Stripes. It was his hope that he could give that same opportunity to another deserving veteran so that they may experience the Honor Flight.

Fager, Philip Wayne

For my big brother! He took his Honor Flight last fall. Just a few short months before he passed. He could not stop talking about what a great healing experience it was to fly with his fellow vets to see their memorials. The way they were treated, the honor they were shown, the stories that were told. His wish instead of spending money flowers that fade was to give memories to a Veteran by donating to this cause. Love you miss you Big Brother I will see you on Fiddlers Green!!!
Arthur Fager, Major US Army Retired

Falaschi, Louis

Our father, Louis Falaschi, was a veteran of WWII. While attending Horlick High School in Racine, he was drafted into the United States Army on his 18th birthday. He was so proud of serving. He also fortunate to participate with the Honor Flight program in 2012, with his son, Alfred, as his chaperone. He also was part of the record-breaking Honor Flight movie debut at Miller Park. He recently passed away on December 27, 2019. With some of the donations our family has received, we would like to pay it forward, so that another veteran would be able to enjoy the Honor Flight program.

My dad was a WWII Coast Guard Veteran. He was on LST 262 and was in the Normandy invasion . When I was a 13 or 14 yrs old I used to ask him what he did and where he was, all I got was tidbits. We did not talk about it for a lot of years and I and brothers and sisters tried to get him on the Honor Flight to DC. The answer was always I did not do anything . Everyone brought it up until my brother Dave got a yes and went with him, What a surprise he got when he came back to the Milwaukee Airport. He found out he did make a difference. Over the years since when I called got more info about what he did during the war and talked about my Navy escapades. I am glad I found a lot more about my Dad thanks to Honor Flight.

On July 4th 1939, during Lou Gehrig Appreciation Day at Yankee Stadium in New York, Lou Gehrig had this to say about his recent diagnosis of ALS. "“For the past two weeks you have been reading about a bad break. Yet today I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth.” Uncle Ray, we are some of the luckiest people on the face of the earth because you were part of our lives. You always made us smile and laugh with your stories and jokes. Even if it was 15th time we heard them. I always loved watching Aunt Sue’s face when you would tell one of your famous jokes or stories. It was priceless! It was like she heard it before. You will certainly be missed!
