THE VILLAGE’S VERY OWN SCOTT BAKER
WAS ABOARD “OLD GLORY HONOR FLIGHT MISSION 52”!!!
A group of 100 veterans from Northeast Wisconsin spent the anniversary of 9/11 on an Old Glory Honor Flight to the Nation’s Capital, and the Village’s very own Scott Baker was one of them!!! The trip was dubbed “Old Glory Honor Flight Mission 52”.
The veterans on Mission 52 served in World War II, Korea and Vietnam, and after leaving the Appleton Airport early on the morning of September 11th they spent the afternoon touring war memorials around Washington, DC as well as Arlington National Cemetery. Their plane returned to Appleton just after 8 p.m.
The trip wrapped up with a welcome home celebration that brought out thousands of people, many of whom were dressed in patriotic colors, held signs and waved flags, and representatives of the Sister Bay-Liberty Grove Fire Department were there in uniform to welcome Scott home.
In an interview with a reporter from WBAY Channel 2, Scott said, “I put my name on the list several years ago. I didn’t think it would ever come about. But it’s an emotional day, especially with the comrades my age, and I enjoyed every minute of it. It’s a wonderful, wonderful organization”.
Thank you so much for your service to our Country Scott, and thank you to the Firefighters for welcoming Scott home in grand fashion!!!!
