Ernest Schade, a Sag Harbor resident and Korean War veteran — also the Sag HarborFest whaleboat race announcer — was joined by Vee Bennett, another Sag Harbor resident who is the operations director of the nonprofit Honor Flight, and Southampton Town Councilman and North Haven resident Tommy John Schiavoni in Washington DC on September 22.

Honor Flight Long Island flew 20 World War II veterans and 30 Korean War veterans for free to Washington DC to visit their National War Memorial.
