World War II Veteran Being Recognized

by Kim Brixton

Battle Creek resident, and highly decorated veteran Mr. Chester Wernecke stopped by the studio recently with his lovely wife Alice to talk about his experience serving our country during WWII and an upcoming trip to Washington D.C. through The Honor Flight Network. 

Talons Out Honor Flight is the Southwest Michigan hub for the national Honor Flight Network. Our goal is to take World War II Veterans in and around Southwest Michigan to Washington, D.C. (at no charge to the Vets) to visit their WWII memorial. 

Next month Mr. Wernecke will be officially receiving the French Legion Of Honor at a ceremony in Battle Creek.
