Honor Mission
Walter J. Leary, Veteran
USN – WWII
Chilton, Wisconsin – 10-15-18

ABOUT THE MISSION:

Walter James Leary, age 94, of Chilton died on Thursday, October 11, 2018 at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Appleton. Many of you had the opportunity to meet Walter just a few weeks ago when we surprised him with a recognition lunch to thank him for his service. Walter served us in the US Navy in WWII and was such a fascinating story teller, those in attendance were mesmerized. Afterwards, an individual convinced him he deserved to be on the Honor Flight but he fell ill and was unable to go. He was rescheduled and was excited for the next flight but took his “personal flight” home yesterday. He became part of the PGR family that day and temporarily had “the colors” to prove it.   His family said, ” Having the Patriot Riders enter our lives has been a blessing.” and have asked us to join them as Walter is laid to rest.
