Last year Lewis Frongner received eight WWII awards nearly 60 years after serving in the army. These honors have been meaningful to the Morgan resident, who accepted them with pride and happiness. However, the late-coming accolades didn’t end with the presentation by Senator Orrin Hatch last year. Frongner has been selected to join other WWII veterans on a once-in-a-lifetime trip.
Frongner is traveling with the current Utah Honor Flight to Washington D.C. The group made up of WWII vets is embarking on an all-expense paid trip to see the monument made in honor of their service.
The trip began with a block party on Thursday morning and then each of the vets and one guardian were flown to the nation’s capital. Frongner is accompanied by his son, Randy. The honorable group is scheduled to return on Saturday, Sept. 20.
We look forward to hearing about our hometown hero’s experience on the Utah Honor Flight. Thank you, Lewis Frongner, and all others who have valiantly served our country and the world.
