Katlic recently returned from an “Honor Flight” to Washington, D. C. These flights are given to veterans of World War II to take them to see the monument to their service and to all their buddies who served in the “Great War.”

Katlic was in the Battle of the Bulge, the deadly battle with the Germans on Dec. 16, 1944, where America suffered 90,000 causalities, 19,000 of which were fatalities.

Katlic will be accompanied by some young men who will post the colors and play “Taps.” Jessica Pelletier will entertain with a patriotic song.

Mothers of Parker County who have sons or daughters in harm’s way in Iraq or Afghanistan will be special guests at this luncheon. They will be recognized and the son or daughter will be sent a special package to Iraq or Afghanistan.

Reservations are required. The cost of the meal and meeting is $15. To make a reservation, call Patsy Perkins at 817-441-6290. Visitors are welcome.
