Chester F., 88, Furlong, PA and Warren K., 90, Hatboro, PA

Chester and Warren will have their wish granted thanks to many generous donors!

Chester was a Seaman aboard the USS Corry, the lead ship in the D-Day invasion.  His ship was sunk by German artillery and Chester spent many hours in the water before being rescued. His greatest wish is to return to the beaches of Normandy to revisit the site of the invasion and to pay his respects, in person, to his fellow shipmates and other comrades who lost their lives that day.

Warren would like to accompany his great friend, Chester, on this trip.  He is also a WWII veteran who served in the China-Burma-India Theater of operation during the war.  He knows that the visit will be overwhelming for Chester and he would like to be there for reassurance. 

They both are active members of the VFW and provide a welcoming presence to the younger members of their post.  They also march proudly every year in the Doylestown Memorial Day Parade.

Please donate today to make their wish come true!
