Editor’s note: This story was originally published in The Wenatchee World on Nov. 11, 2009. Erick Erickson is now 88 and living in Wenatchee. His friend Karl Bates, now 86, still lives in Yakima. Erickson flew to Washington, D.C., in early November 2012 as part of the Inland Northwest Honor Flight to visit Alrlington National Cemetery and the World War II Memorial.
