In a ceremony on June 12, Motts Military Museum dedicated a flagpole to World War II veteran and museum board member Lt. Mike Pohorilla. “We dedicated a flagpole that Mike purchased for the museum,” said Motts Military Museum Director Warren Motts. “During the ceremony, Mike talked about his experiences as a navigator on a B-17 in World War II. We also gave special recognition to him and ‘The Greatest Generation’ for all they had done for this great country during and after the war.” The raising of the colors, 21-gun rifle salute, and “Taps” were performed by Pohorilla’s VFW Post 10523 of Canal Winchester at the ceremony. Pohorilla signed a model of the museum’s B-17 and Lenora Hause presented Pohorilla with a beautiful handmade quilt.
