Four area veterans recently were able to go on the Midwest Honor Flight. A whirlwind trip, their plane was scheduled to take off from Sioux Falls at 4:00 a.m., Monday, September 24, and return by 7:30 that evening. The veterans from the Gregory area were Ray Petersek of Colome, who served in the navy during World War II, Emil Hlavka, an army MP in the Korean War, Doug Lindquist, an army truck driver and Curt Vakiner, an army medic, both Viet Nam veterans. Hlavka, Lindquist, and Vakiner are all from Gregory.
