CHICAGO (July 2014) — Last October, we sat down with a group of veterans who live at Park Place of Elmhurst. All of these veterans had participated in an Honor Flight, and all of them expressed deep appreciation for the experience.

We posted the “Honor Flights at Park Place” story on our blog, and one of the local newspapers picked it up. Some of the resident veterans have also been active as speakers at local schools and community meetings.

On July 24, two of those veterans — Fae Gedz and Wally Sandberg — traveled downtown to appear on WGN TV. News Personality Steve Sanders met with both of them in Studio 3, though only Wally was interviewed for “Chicago Scene.” Honor Flight Ambassador Ron Wolflick appeared with Wally in the segment.
