Head of Arlington Hts. veterans committe assisting with upcoming Honor Flight
Arlington Heights veterans activist Greg Padovani will be traveling to Washington D.C. next week as a guardian for a local World War II vet as part of Honor Flight McHenry.
The trip, from Sept. 13-15, will take a group of Chicago-area veterans to memorials for World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, Iwo Jima and the Air Force, as well as a visit to Arlington National Cemetery.
The group will fly back into the Milwaukee Airport and have a welcome home party at the Cary Country Club.
Padovani will be a guardian for Morrie Bishaf, a World War II veteran living in Gurnee. One guardian accompanies each veteran on the trip to provide any assistance necessary. The trip is provided to the veterans at no charge.
Padovani, a veteran of the U.S. Army Medical Services Corps, is chairman of the Arlington Heights Veterans Affairs Committee.
