      Double Nickels Luncheon for those 55 & Up, 11/13/19

      Captain Carl J. Stewart, USN (Retired), co-founder and President of the Board of Honor Flight Bay Area, will address the Double Nickels Luncheon for those 55 and Up on November 13. The luncheon begins at noon at the Church of the Good Shepherd, 301 Corral De Tierra Rd., off Hwy 68 between Monterey and Salinas.

      Stewart will speak about establishing the Honor Flight Bay Area Foundation and developing its mission to honor veterans and their service, achievements and sacrifices by flying them to Washington DC to see the many memorials to military service members. Nationally, over 250,000 veterans have made this life-affirming journey. The Bay Area “hub” (Salinas to the Oregon border) has taken almost 600 veterans in 23 flights to date, along with each vet’s guardian for the trip.

      Much of Stewart’s duties involve organizing the trips so as to make the trek totally seamless for the 25+ veterans on each trip and their guardians (helpers). He is well qualified for these detailed, involved efforts having served in Kuwait, responsible for a fleet of 1,000 18-wheelers, 100 trucks and drivers to support that mission of feeding 175,000 troops and staff in 2007.

      Stewart served in both Kuwait and Iraq and retired after 30 years in the Navy from his post at the Naval Post Graduate School in 2012. He now resides in Pacific Grove.
