Chester Jantz And The Central Valley Honor Flight

By B-K Lighting

Since 2013 the Central Valley Honor Flight has been committed to honoring local WWII veterans and Korean War veterans by sending them to see their memorials in Washington D.C.

Chester Louis Jantz – better known as “Uncle” never talked about his military career or for that matter anything personal. He is not one to boost about his academic or career accomplishments, political convictions or religious beliefs – he just lived his life based on these attributes. When I learned he was invited to participate in the April 2015 Honor Flight, I knew he would have to tell us more about this time in his life. Unbeknownst to me – or did I just not pay attention – he has written his “memories of his military service”.
