Museum seeks to honor veterans

Send a link to a friend

To the editor:

Stanley Paulis, a longtime member and volunteer at the Heritage In Flight Museum, passed away a few weeks ago.

The word "hero" is overused in society today, but Stan was a REAL hero.

During World War II he flew 67 missions over German-occupied territory.

Stan came to the museum and mowed grass every Saturday until his and his wife's health (issues) took their toll.

The museum is now embarking on a project to re-landscape the area around the American flagpole location, which is dedicated to the men and women who served in WWII and all the wars since.

[to top of second column in this letter]

I and other members of the museum will be donating $100 to the museum to complete this project.

If you have not yet made a donation to honor Stan, this is a good time and a worthy cause. Send your donation to HIF, 1351 Airport Rd., Lincoln, IL 62656
