“This has been the highlight of my life,” said Brother Chalmer “Chuck” Shuff after the Honor Drive to celebrate his service to his country and to UA Local 469.
Brother Shuff was scheduled to fly to Washington D.C. in March to be recognized for his WWII service by Honor Flight but the trip was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We decided to bring the celebration to him with an Honor Drive patriotic parade by his home to thank him for his service to his country and for his 70 years of service to Local 469. Brother Shuff was surprised and moved by the tribute from his Local 469 family, friends and community members.
Thank you to everyone who came out to thank Brother Shuff, including Glendale Fire Department, Veterans for Veterans motorcycle group, VFW riders and a volunteers from Honor Flight.
