A high honor
Mark Wegener, World War II Veteran, 97, was chosen to receive the 4,000th Veteran’s Honor Flight. Thursday morning, April 26, 2018, Mark was flown from the Quad City International Airport to the Washington, D.C. memorials. Thursday evening at around 9:30, Mark is set to return to the Quad City International Airport. At the airport, upon his return, you are invited to meet and greet Mark.
Late Friday morning into the early afternoon, Hyvee on Agency Street in Burlington will be hosting a reception with Mark. Hyvee will offer refreshments, and the Hamilton-Walters Marine Corps League Honor Guard will be present. You are invited to this local reception. Mark is really looking forward to meeting you.
