Happy Dollar by Joel Wihebrink brought attention to Fred Nieter’s recent honoring as a veteran. On May 23 Fred and his escort, along with 81 other veterans went on the Honor Flight of Northeast Indiana. They flew out of Fort Wayne at 6:00 a.m. and returned same day at 11:00 p.m. The club recognized Fred and the other 81 veterans who joined him with a standing ovation. Fred asked that the following message be shared in the club newsletter: “Thanks to all who wrote notes and letters that you sent for me to receive on the return flight from Washington. The thoughts and personal notes are very much appreciated. I have confessed to some that I have feelings of guilt for receiving all of the recognition that is really deserved by those thousands of guys who will not be coming home. And the standing “O” from the club really touched me. I am not used to that kind of attention and didn’t quite know how to handle it! Thanks gang!”
