Ageless Aviation gives veteran resident at The Woods at Willowcreek a dream ride


Ageless Aviation Dreams Foundation was in Salem, Oregon, July 2nd to give Veterans an aerial view of the capitol city. The Woods at Willowcreek, The Springs Living community in Salem, submitted the application for Wayne Homes, a veteran of World War II. Before leaving for the Salem Municipal Airport, Wayne stopped by the office and thanked the surprised staff, who did not expect Wayne to be picked the day after they submitted the application. “I wish to thank you from the bottom of my heart,” Wayne said, with tears in his eyes.

Wayne, who survived Omaha Beach during D-Day, had a smile from ear to ear during his twenty minute flight around the city. This was an amazing gift and the staff would like to extend Wayne’s appreciation to Christy Charnquist, an employee at The Springs at Tannasbourne, who brought Ageless Aviation to the attention of The Woods at Willowcreek.
