Happy “106” Birthday Richard Lohnes, WWll Veteran

May 5, 2024

Veterans Cuts joined many other Veterans on the weekend of Saturday, May 4, 2024 to wish Veteran Richard Lohnes a very happy “106” birthday!!!  He is the OLDEST of  “17” WWll Veterans in Tazewell county.  Richard “Dick” Lohnes currently still resides in his own home.  As we drove up he was sitting comfortably on his porch smiling and waving as the bikes, and vehicles pulled up.  One by one we approached Mr. Lohnes and shook his hand personally and wished him a very happy birthday.  What a amazing, chilling afternoon it was.  He was alert and very happy to speak to everyone.  Jackie, our President and Shannon, our Marketing Coordinator were also there.  We supplied Mr. Lohnes with his personal birthday hat, card and a couple of balloons as well.  It truly was amazing to be able to meet such an honorable great veterans of this era.  The stories that were shared, the decorated yard, the span of the bikes traveling to road to Green Valley….truly chilling event.  Thank you Mr. Lohnes for your service Sir….and we hope to see you again next year!!!
