WWII Veteran Honored For 23 Years of Service

One of the Greatest Generation was honored in a ceremony at the Red Door Senior Citizen. WWII veteran Charles "Chuck" Hartney was honored today for his service to America. Mr. Hartney was a radio operator for the US Air Force, going on 32 missions during WWII before being shot down over Hamburg, Germany. He was captured and held prisoner until the end of the war.

Mr. Hartney did part with advice for the newest generation of soldiers, telling them to "stay with our country and never talk against it to the enemy. In other words, remain the skilled soldier all the time."

Chuck Hartney served in the Air Force for 23 years from 1942-1965.
