A local Honor Flight organization which typically takes fast-disappearing World War II veterans to see memorials in Washington D.C. was, for the first time, taking a Vietnam veteran along on Thursday.
WBBM Newsradio’s Mike Krauser reports Jim Pudlas saw the worst in Vietnam, treating the wounded as a combat medic.
He’s always wanted to see the Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall in Washington, D.C.
Honor Flight McHenry president Randy Granath said it was a letter from Pudlas’ daughter that made it happen.
“It was a very nice letter seeing if there was any possible way that our organization could make this happen for her dad,” Granath said.
