On Thursday, I had the honor of flying Charlene to Wisconsin while volunteering with Veterans Airlift Command. Charlene was visiting her son Michael in Washington. Michael was injured in the line of duty in Iraq and continues to endure surgeries ten years later.
Flying her back, I learned that Charlene and Michael had befriended Representative Bill Young. Representative Young passed away last week and his funeral was the day of our flight. She and Michael thought very highly of Bill Young, as did I.
