editorial@robson.com — June 2012 VFW pays tribute to WWII veterans


Honor Flight Veterans: Dick Smith, Jimmy Kerr, Mike Harper and Bob Bender. Russell W. Bercier VFW Post 8053 is


sponsoring an all-expense paid “Honor Flight” trip to Washington DC for six WWII Veterans and members of Post 8053 to visit the National World War II Memorial. Four qualifi ed members of our Post will


take their “Honor Flight” in May 2012. They will receive round trip airfare to Washington DC, meals,


lodging, and memorabilia of


the event. Honorees for the fi rst “Honor Flight” are left to right in picture above: Dick Smith served with the 7th Army on the Allied invasion into France in 1944; Jimmy Kerr served with the 6th Army during the Occupation of Japan in 1946; Mike Harper served with the 2nd Marine DIV/HQ Service Battalion on Saipan in 1944; Bob Bender served as a B-24 co-pilot with the 15th AF, 464th BDE, 779th SQ of the Army Air Force and fl ew missions over Germany and Northern Italy in 1944.


Request all readers reach out and thank


our WWII Veterans. Say ‘Hello” and ‘Chat’ with them about their experiences and service to our Country. They each have an inspiring story to share. Our World War II veterans are dying at an alarming rate of 1,000 a day, and these men and women who made personal sacrifi ces for our country in WWII will soon be gone forever. Most will never have an opportunity visit their Memorial. For more information on VFW Post 8053 support to WWII Vets, contact Blaine Shipe at 602-695-1827. VFW Post 8053 serves


veterans of


foreign wars in Sun Lakes, SunBird and the rest of southern Chandler area. The Post serves men and women veterans and their families’ needs as well strengthen their bonds within the community by perpetuating their memories of patriotism and devotion to our country. 
