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