DELPHOS — Korean War Veteran John Williams was more than surprised recently when he and his son, James Williams, took off for a drive to Toledo and hopped on an Honor Flight to Washington, D.C.

He and his son — a veteran of the Panama Invasion in 1989 — who served as his father’s guardian during the trip, took off from Grand Aire Hangar, just west of Toledo Express Terminal, where the “send off” party began shortly after a 6 a.m. breakfast.

This Field Day was part of the larger Amateur Radio Week that concluded this weekend and included tens of thousands of ham radio operators and groups from around the country. The Van Wert Amateur Radio Club demonstrated the techniques they would use to keep emergency communications open in the event of disasters such as tornadoes, hurricanes, or ice storms. The local Field Day was held at the Van Wert EMA office on Lincoln Highway. (DHI Media/Kirk Dougal)
