Four Korean War Veterans who live in Kewaunee County will have the opportunity to return to Korea after serving in the military there over 60 years ago. Jerry Simonar and Anthony Treml of Luxemburg, as well as Lloyd Nimmer and Art Belter of Kewaunee found out earlier this month that they and 46 other Korean War veterans from Northeastern Wisconsin will be taking the Old Glory Honor Flight next May. The 87-year-old Simonar shares what he is looking forward to most on his return to Korea.
The veterans taking the 10-day trip will need to pass a physical next spring to be eligible. They will then be accompanied by guardians on the trip which will leave from Appleton. The veteran’s expenses for the Old Glory Honor Flight Return to Korea are being paid for by the South Korean government, according to Simonar.
