Military veteran wins hot air balloon ride

Retired military serviceman James Stull of Albion, Ind., recently won a hot air balloon ride, courtesy of RE/MAX Results’ “Thank You For Your Service Flight” drawing. Stull served in the U.S. Navy from 1965-1968 and is a member of American Legion Post 246 in Albion and the Kendallville Francis Vinyard VFW Post 2749, where his winning ticket was drawn. Stull was presented with his flight certificate by the Wolcottville RE/MAX Results Office on August 7.

He is set to take his flight on Friday, Aug. 30, at 7 p.m. Takeoff is from the Kendallville Municipal Airport, weather permitting.

RE/MAX Results in Wolcottville held a “Thank You For Your Service Flight” drawing in mid-July as a way to recognize the commitment and sacrifices made by local military men and women. Lori Abbott, office administrator at RE/MAX Results, says the interest in the opportunity was amazing. “We were overwhelmed by the response and number of registrations collected through this drive. And we couldn’t be more pleased with the honest recognition given to our local military members. We just wish we had more hot air balloon certificates!”
