A 95-year-old World War II veteran died during a flight to San Diego on Monday evening, returning from an “Honor Flight” to Washington, D.C., to vist the WW II Memorial, the organization arranging the trip confirmed.
Frank Manchel was completing a trip arranged by Honor Flight San Diego – a group that provides veterans with all-expense-paid trips to visit war memorials in the nation’s capital.
“It is with our most deepest sympathy that we send our condolences to the Frank Manchel family,” Honor Flight San Diego said in a statement on its Facebook page. “Mr. Manchel passed away on the flight to San Diego last evening. He collapsed and resuscitation measures were taken but he could not be revived.”
“Frank Manchel was so excited to go on Honor Flight……………To be with both of his sons as well as his 93-year-old brother who met him in Washington, D.C., was so special. My father’s passing was the ending to the most amazing weekend, surrounded by his newest best friends.”
