Roseville veteran honored with state award


Jerry and Jana Kyser of Roseville organize bi-annual Honor Flights out of the Twin Cities that take World War II veterans to the WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Kyser, a North Dakota native, served in the Vietnam War for three years in the late 1960s as a young man in his early 20s. His main duties included delivering supplies and transporting soldiers via helicopter.

The Kysers have helped more than 1,100 World War II veterans take the Twin Cities Honor Flight. Each flight costs an estimated $75,000 to put on -- and the veterans "don't pay a dime," Jerry says.

Kyser's energy, commitment helps fuel Honor Flights

"You either get bitter or you get better," Roseville resident and Army veteran Jerry Kyser says of soldiers returning from war. 

"I chose to get better."
