Photos and Story Submitted by: 1st Lt. Tulloch
On Friday June 26, 2009, Fox Valley Composite Squadron hosted two WWII Veterans, Mr. Don Johnson and  Mr. Burnell Wollar.  Mr. Johnson was a bombardier in the Amy Air Corps. who flew several missions over Europe in B-24s. Mr. Johnson served in the Army infantry and participated in the invasion of Normandy on June 6, 1944.  Both servicemen are active in their local VFW chapter in Barrington, Illinois and volunteer much of their time visiting our youth at schools and various organizations sharing their stories about WWII. Our squadron cadets asked many insightful questions regarding the veterans experiences during the war and showed great interest in their descriptions of the war. At the conclusion of the program, the squadron honored our veterans with a group salute.
