Airman Daniel Haag of Boulder Junction in Vilas County served as a Mechanics Specialist in the United States Air Force during the Korean War.
"We often talked and said Dad, if you weren't working on those aircraft more men would have died, the war could have been longer" Haag's daughter Wendi Neupert told Newsline 9, sitting beside the Korean War Memorial.
"When the Never Forgotten Honor Flight started, I said Dad, we've got to sign up, it may be the only chance we get" she said.
Neupert received word that her father had been given a seat, and she'd be able to accompany him, on the eighth flying of the Never Forgotten Honor Flight on May 7, 2012.
But less than three weeks before the Honor Flight was set to take off, Airman Haag passed away from Pneumonia. "Dad would always say, it'd be years and years before he'd get his turn, and here it is three years later and his turn had come. His turn had come" Neupert said.
The Never Forgotten Honor Flight flies veterans of World War II and the Korean War to Washington, D.C. to let them visit the memorials built in their honor at no cost to them. When the veterans visited the Korean War Memorial, Neupert was given a special honor. She walked the length of the memorial holding a photo of her father. As the 89 veterans on the flight paid respects to their fallen brother.
"It was such a great honor to be able to do that for Dad and to be able to be here for him, in his shoes, he'd love this. He would just love this" Neupert said.
