Prairie City veteran hesitated to attend Freedom Flight
Melvin Wicker, a Korean War era veteran from Prairie City, was concerned his service might not qualify him for the Jasper County Freedom Flights.
“I called Doug Bishop, the guy putting it together, and I told him that I didn’t do a damn thing,” Wicker said. “Well, he said, ‘You went, didn’t you? You did what they told you to do, didn’t you?’”
With the support of Bishop and a number of people from the community, Melvin decided to sign up for the Oct. 25, 2011, Freedom Flight.
