Richard G. Thieme of 339th fighter group, has sadly died 1924 - 2017 Richard G. Thieme, 93, went peacefully to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on April 15, 2017. He was born to Ervin H. and Ida (Bogen) Thieme in Sheboygan on January 11, 1924. He attended public schools and graduated from Central High in 1942, and subsequently was accepted as an aviation cadet in the United States Army Air Corps, which later became the U.S. Air Force. He served as a fighter pilot in the air war over Germany and flew 70 combat missions in a P-51 Mustang, which he named "Boomerang" because a boomerang always comes back. Among his decorations were the Air Medal with 7 Oak Leaf Clusters, the Distinguished Flying Cross, the Europe-African Medal with 3 battle stars, and the Presidential Unit citation. After the war he remained in the reserve forces, where he served until 1968, when he retired as Lieutenant Colonel. He had a commercial pilot's license. On September 10, 1948, he married the love of his life, Emma Hermann, at Trinity Lutheran Church in Sheboygan. They lived happily ever after for 68 years. He was employed at the Sheboygan Glass Company, serving the last 20 years as president and retiring in 1989. He also served on various offices and committees as a member of Trinity Lutheran Church, as well as on the Board of Directors of the Sheboygan Chamber of Commerce and Sheboygan Memorial Medical Center. He was active in various state construction safety committees and was Treasurer of the 339th Fighter Group Association and a member of VFW National Post 1500. He was a highly skilled builder who designed and constructed his family's first home, a summer cottage on Legend Lake in Menominee County, and major renovation projects on his children's houses. He also enjoyed fishing and making cabinetry and fine furniture for family and friends. He was modest, fearless, and stoic, a loving husband and father, and a generous provider

AMERICA REMEMBERS: One final salute for 106-year-old soldier: America honors 'Mr. Jack Jacobson. Friends, Jack Jacobson was among the oldest living World War II veterans in the U.S. at the time of his death. Born in 1910 in Worchester, Mass., Jacobson didn't move to coastal Alabama until well past his retirement in 1999. But it was during his time as a Point Clear resident - and beyond his 100th birthday - that Jacobson became a local celebrity. He was routinely recognized at public events by his friend, Dr. Barry Booth, a Vietnam War veteran who helped organize the Honor Flight South Alabama missions to Washington, D.C. Those trips, provided from 2008-2013, were day-long tours for veterans to military sites including the World War II Memorial. Jacobson appeared at school, civic and church functions to speak about the importance of serving others: "Another day to live is another day to serve," was among his favorite lines. School students, including those who attended his 106th birthday celebration last year at St. Paul's Episcopal School in Mobile, affectionately called him "Mr. Jack." "So often because of the young people he met in the schools and churches, he indicated that the best years of his life were the last years of his life," said Booth. Jacobson enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1940, and was sent off to England to prepare for the invasion of France in 1944. It was during this time that he spent two years as a quartermaster in famed Gen. George Patton's Third Army. He remained in the U.S. Army Reserve from 1946-1953, before moving to Kansas City, Missouri, where he took a family-owned packing plant, expanded it and moved the company to Liberal, Kansas. He was considered an innovator in the meat packing industry. He retired in 1986, and moved to Florida where he became an avid golfer. In 1999, he and his late wife, Georgia, moved to Alabama. He continued playing golf until he was 101. Few times in your life you really come to love someone who is absolutely remarkable. Mr. Jack was certainly that way.
