The two Korean War veterans flew on FIFI, Jack Brady of Ohio and Clint Davis of Kentucky. The veterans that flew on Diamond Lil were, John Brown and Henry Armstrong of Ohio who served in World War II, Korea, and Vietnam and George Gierach of Ohio served in World War II. During the flight, they reminisced about their time in the service and regaled the crew with their stories. This flight is another excellent example of #WhyWeFly.
