MILWAUKEE — Every 90 seconds, another World War II veteran passes away. Time is running out to say thanks. That’s where the Honor Flight comes in — and a new movie sharing its stories is coming to Milwaukee and Miller Park in August.

The first short video in the series to honor living World War II veterans, leads up to the premiere of the feature film, “Honor Flight” at Miller Park in August.

Ryan Jazak is a volunteer for Stars and Stripes Honor Flight, a nonprofit hub out of Wisconsin that flies WWII vets to see their memorial in Washington, DC, at no cost to them. And he rides a sweet Harley!

Ryan posted on Facebook that he was selected as a “guardian” to accompany vet Al Exner on an Honor Flight. Ryan posted on Facebook that he was going to have a tough time coming up with the money to pay his way. His friends responded with their support and the checks poured in — including a large check from Ryan’s brother, Eric Jazak USMC who is stationed in Afghanistan.

People like Ryan are stepping up all across America. To learn more about this project, the upcoming film, and how you can get involved, visit

The Stars and Stripes Honor Flight film event will be held August 11th at Miller Park.
