Wish of A Lifetime Canada - Exploring far-distant skies Featured

Wish of a Lifetime CanadaMeet John, 92

Some of us spend our entire lives wondering if we've made a difference in this world... but for 92-year-old WWII veteran John, the answer is crystal clear. He doesn't merely tell stories of valor and duty and honor, he lives them.
John was an RCAF pilot for the air-sea rescue unit during WWII. In his PBY flying boat, John skimmed the waters of Java, Indonesia, and New Guinea, rescuing fellow soldiers, transporting doctors to remote, war-ravaged countries, and saving countless lives.
After his faithful service, John returned from far-distant skies to become a devoted family man, dedicated volunteer, and exemplar of strength and selflessness, but he has never tired of sharing his valiant stories with an immense sense of pride.

"Back in the air is where I would love to be,"
John said with a chuckle, believing the freedom of flight was now out of reach. Little did he know his wish to fly a PBY aircraft one last time was about to come true thanks to his loving granddaughter Stacey and Wish of a Lifetime Canada.
