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.

This donation is in memory and honor of Willis Guy "Bill" Littell. Bill served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War and was fortunate to have had the opportunity to participate in an Honor Flight a couple years ago. I hope this donation will help in some way to allow other veterans to experience the trip and be honored for their service.

Matuszewski, Jr., Walter

Uncle Wally was born January 18, 1928 and went home to be with the Lord God Almighty on October 1, 2019. He served in the Army in 1945, while we don’t have a great deal of the details of his service, we wanted to remember him, his life and his service by donating to the Honor Flight. His wife Elaine, his children Judy & Randy went home to Heaven before him. He is survived by 7 of his children, their spouses and a multitude of grandchildren. Lucky Wally was a concertina player in his Polka band in Cudahy, WI. Rest in peace Uncle Wally, we hope other vets will get to see their memorials in Wash. DC. Thank you for your service.

Miller, Jesse

This is a tribute to my father, Jesse Miller who was on your May 16, 2015 honor flight. This flight was all he talked about for weeks, that this organization would do this for so many Veterans. It gave him a new sense of patriotism for your country. Unfortunately he passed away on September 21, 2015 of lung cancers. I was lucky enough to be his Guardian on this flight. I was also inspired by what this trip meant to all the other Veteran and my Father. So to keep this mission going for all the Veteran that will be taking future flights I’m sending this yearly donation in my fathers name. Merry Christmas to your entire staff and Thank You for what do.

Smith, J

“J” “B” Smith, age 89, of Kenosha, died on Wednesday, October 30th, 2019, at Kenosha Hospice Alliance, with his loving family by his side. He joined the US Navy after high school and served 23 years achieving the rank of LCDR before retiring in 1971. During his naval career, he met the love of his life who worked at Great Lakes Naval Base, Charlene, and they were married on November 24th, 1956 in Great Lakes, Ill. She brought a special sparkle to his eyes that never faded, and she was a proud Navy wife. Their marriage extended beyond 58 years and their family continued to grow. “J” “B” thoroughly loved spending time with his family and loved to gather his children and grandchildren. He was very active at St Thomas Church, in the parish council, ushering, and as a lector. He worked at Miller Brewing as part of the team that bottled the first bottle of Miller. In 2013 he had the special privilege of being on the first Stars and Stripes Honor Flight for Korean War Veterans.

Spitzer, Donald

Donald R Spitzer QM 3rd Class United States Navy 1943-1946 Don enlisted in the Navy as an 18 year old after graduation from West Allis Central High School because it was the right thing to do. He was assigned to the crew of Landing Craft Tank (LCT 1082). LCT 1082 joined a flotilla of 24 LCT’s and travelled 7470 miles from Pearl Harbor to Okinawa, Japan. The flotilla survived getting lost in a typhoon for several days without any loss of lives. They were successful, completing their mission. Don never talked much about his experiences until very late in his life. His children suggested a Honor Flight but he declined. Perhaps he felt it was to much fuss over his service. Don passed away in 2011. He left us a scrapbook that he kept with 100’s of pictures and documents from his Naval service. To this day, "Anchors Away" bring tears to our eyes. He will forever be our hero.

"“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!
