Letters Needed To Pay Tribute To Local Vietnam Veteran

An appeal is being made to contribute letters to a “Mail Call” for a Fond du Lac Vietnam Veteran who will be participating in the Yellow Ribbon Honor Flight from EAA AirVenture to Washington D.C. on Friday, July 29th. Tom Scherg was wounded in the war four times and received three Purple Heart medals. His daughter Angie Blamey says despite what he went through Tom talks openly about his experiences in Vietnam. He will be among the veterans making the flight to visit veterans’ memorials in the Nation’s Capital including the Vietnam Memorial Wall. Angie says he’s seen the Wall once before and it had an impact on him. The “Mail Call” is part of the tradition of the honor flights. Those who would like to be part of that honor for Tom Scherg should send their letters to Angie Blamey in care of Tom Scherg, at N7787 Ledgeview Springs Drive, Fond du Lac, WI. 54937. Letters need to be in her hands by this Thursday.
