Thank you for your service and for being an inspiration to so many.
From Obituary: "Sonny" earned a full football scholarship to the University of Wisconsin, but after one semester, he and one of his childhood friends enlisted in the Navy. He completed basic training at the Great Lakes Naval Academy in Illinois and was stationed for a time at Camp LeJeune in North Carolina and at Camp Pendleton in California. Sonny wrote to President Eisenhower requesting that he be sent to the front lines, and the federal government obliged. He was assigned to combat duty in Korea as a navy corpsman attached to the Marine Corps as part of Able Company, 1st Marines, 1st Battalion. Sonny served in the Navy from January 16, 1951 through December 1, 1954, when he received an Honorable Discharge. As with so many of his generation, he rarely talked about the war. It was only later that he started to recount some of his experiences. One of the most harrowing battles, which was reported in the Sheboygan Press at the time, is now documented in the Korean War Project.

I’d like to make this tribute in memory of my father, SGM William Mahnke who passed away in April 2020. We took our Honor Flight together in May 2019 when I knew his time was likely short.

Our father served in the Navy at the end of WWII. He was proud of his service until his recent death. We his children were so proud of him. Dad so enjoyed going on the Honor Flight. Thank you and God Bless.

To my father Jesse B. Miller who was onboard the May 16, 2015 Honor Flight. He could not believe that an organization of volunteers would do so much for all are great Veterans. He was so inspired by this great organization and talked about how grateful he was for the opportunity to be able to take this incredible venture to Washington D.C. with them. He felt that every Veteran should have the opportunity to experience this incredible day of honor. Unfortunately my father passed away in September of 2015. As his son and guardian on this flight I also was incredibly inspired from what I saw and heard during this trip. So in honor of my father I am sending our yearly donation so that other Veterans can have the opportunity to take part in a mission to honor them. Thank You for all you do for our great Veterans.

Joseph was on the honor flight May 2015. He was in the army during the Korean Conflict. He was in awe about the entire Honor Flight day and everything he saw. Everyone was so caring, helpful, and informative. He talked about this until the day he died in 2019. Thank you for what you do.

Thank you Tom for your service to our country during the Vietnam conflict.
This tribute is in honor of Sgt. Robert J. Voelker. On May 11, 2019, Robert Voelker took his Honor Flight with his daughter Tammy Voelker. Up until my father’s last days he would always talk about the special day that he had with the Stars and Stripes Honor Flight. My father was a Marine in the Vietnam War. My father never spoke of his time as a Marine up until this special day, I got to hear a story about my dad’s time in the war. My father passed away on April 11, 2020, today November 2, 2020 is my father’s 75th Birthday. Today in his honor Robert’s wife Charlene and his children Shaun, Dean, and Tammy donate $400.00 in his honor. We hope to give another veteran the honor of having this opportunity to go on the Stars and Stripes Honor Flight, so they can experience this joy and have this memory of such an amazing day that they can share with family and friends just as my father did. Thank you Stars and Stripes!
Charlene, Shaun, Dean and Tammy Voelker. And from his grandkis Noah and Connor.
Jack was a WWII Navy veteran who flew on the May 2010 Honor Flight from Milwaukee. We had to convince him that he should go - being one of ’The Greatest Generation’ veterans, he never thought he should get that opportunity. His escort for the day was an Army Colonel who took him in his wheelchair to all of the site visits. Jack was so happy when he returned and his kids met him at the airport along with all the other vets. Jack passed away on September 3, 2020 and was 98 years old. We were so blessed to have him as long as we did and he often talked about how honored he was to go on that honor flight in 2010. Thank you for continuing to give all veterans the opportunity to go on these flights and give them the recognition they so deserve.

He was a loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, stepfather and other many relatives and friends.

Grant to them eternal rest. Let light perpetual shine upon them. May his soul and the souls of all the departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
