Help W W II Vet get to Normandy

$20,275 of $12,000 goal

Raised by 571 people in 5 months

This Go Fund Me will benefit my father, World War II Veteran,
Loren Kissick.

Loren Kissick landed at Normandy on D-Day on June 6, 1944.

His experiences include

·        part of the 9th Corps in England

·        first army under General Bradley at Normandy

·        third army at St Leaux under General Patton

He was 19 years old and has always wanted to revisit. He was the
youngest in his unit and is now the only survivor of the 453rd
Automatic Weapons Battalion. He was a machine gunner on a half -
track.

My mother never wanted to travel and he would not leave her. They
were married for 71 years.  She has recently passed away and my sister and I are trying to make Dad's dream to be part of the D-Day
Ceremony in Normandy for the 75th reunion come true.

His unit was de-activated at the end of the war. Click here  to view the piece the 
KING 5 News did on his experiences.

We are hoping to get enought money to get Dad to Normandy and
have him participate in the celebration. This will mean so much to him
to be able to revisit the places so firmly planted in his memories. My
sister and I will accompany him to help take care of him. 
He is mentally sharp and physically able to make this trip. We want to make his dream come true.
We hope to be able to make arrangements by the end  of the year.
We will use the funds to pay for his flight, hotels, ground transportation, and meals.
We will use any extra funds to help pay for my sister and I to accompany Dad to help take care of him on the trip.
We will be eternally grateful to whatever anyone is able to contribute.
