Southeast Honor Flight to fly again Take-off scheduled for Sept. 7 Patrick McCallister For Veteran voice

patrick.mccallister@yahoo.com

TREASURE COAST — Southeast Florida Honor Flight is getting ready to spread its wings again to give area World War II veterans a chance to see the memorial dedicated to them on the National Mall. “We fly in certain times of the year,” Michael Roberts, chairman, said. “Obviously it’s way to hot in (Washington, D.C.) right now, and in winter it’s too cold.” The next one-day trips are scheduled for Sept. 7 and Oct. 19. The local Honor Flight group, called a “hub,” won’t have flights again until spring. The flights depart and arrive at the Palm Beach International Airport. Martin County Commissioner Doug Smith of Jensen Beach will be on the Sept. 7 flight as a guardian, a volunteer who spends the day with a veteran. This is his fifth Honor Flight as a guardian. “There’s the amazement of what these veterans go through over that 15-hour or so period of time,” he said. “It’s amazing to Mitch Kloorfain/chief photographer

Veteran uses military skills to turn Palm City company into one to watch Patrick McCallister For Veteran voice

patrick.mccallister@yahoo.com

PALM CITY — Custom Agronomics will never be a household name, but it is a company to watch. “We are a manufacturer of liquid fertilizers, bio-stimulants and specialty chemicals for the golf and agriculture industries,” co-owner Mike Williams said. Williams is a 1995 graduate of the U.S. Military Academy, West Point. He served until 2000, mostly at Fort Benning, Ga. He made captain, and said the military experience greatly prepared him for business success. “Certainly organizational skills, management skills,” he said. “Doing more than you have time to do.” A glance inside his office shows how deeply the military experience shapes Williams’ work life. Proudly displayed on his desk is his West Point shako, stovepipe hat. On Monday, Aug. 5, GrowFL named Customer Agronomics as

one of its 50 Florida companies to watch, Getting on the annual list is a coveted prize among young companies. The Business Development Board of Martin County nominated Custom Agronomics. Tim Dougher, executive director, said that being named among GrowFL’s companies to watch helps companies in many business circles. He said it was impressive that Martin County had two finalists. The other was a Stuart company. “It’s definitely an honor for these tWo companies and puts them on the map for the future,” he said. Williams said Custom Agronomics isn’t constricted to creating a product line customers can take or leave. It has developed a way to customize its products to buyers’ needs. “We have a patent-pending technology that allows us to do some things no one else in the world can do,” he said. Custom Agronomics does those things with silica. “Silica has been used in agriculture for quite a while,” Williams

It’s always been very difficult to work with silica.” He went on to explain, “(Silica)

FLIGHT from page 1 watch.” He added, “It gets ridiculously emotional. You have these men and women who a long time ago played a significant role in our nation’s history — to a person, they all say what they did was the norm; it’s what anyone would do.” Smith and other guardians don’t just volunteer to spend a day with the veterans. They pay $400 to watch after them. Money well spent, Smith said. He’s worked with at least a dozen charities, but Honor Flight has been one of his favorites. “Anyone who participates gets more than they can imagine out of it,” Smith said. “It’s really cool to see how well done it is. It is the best run volunteer organization I’ve ever been a part of.” The veterans pay … well, Honor Flight figures they paid for the trip with their service. Taryn Kryzda, Martin’s county administrator, went on an Honor Flight to accompany her father, a World War II veteran. She said it was among the most emotional times she’s shared with him. She, of course, paid $400 to go. “I wanted to buy his ticket, too, and they said, ‘No way,’ she said. “We pay for the veterans all the way.” The Honor Flight Network is a national program with dozens of hubs. The National World War II Memorial was erected in 2004. The Honor Flights began, almost by accident, a year later. Honor Flight Southeast Florida started in 2009. The local hub also

and October flights, too. Martin County Commissioner John Haddox of Palm City said the county’s current veterans service office supervisor, Tony Reese, more or less got the hub started. Haddox was the office’s supervisor at the time. He retired and ran for the Commission last year. “We were at a county veterans service officers conference, and a guy from the (Florida) West Coast mentioned (Honor Flight),” Haddox said. “Tony asked me if he could organize a meeting about it. I told him that’s fine.” Haddox said he was busy with other veterans projects, and felt Reese was doing a great job with Honor Flight. He made a management decision to stay out of his way. “They took it — it took off like crazy,” Haddox said. “It was coordinated by the county’s veterans service office.” Among those who got involved early on was the Martin County Firefighters and Paramedics, International Association of Fire Fighters 2959 -- which organized and leads what’s turned out to be the largest fundraiser each year for the flights -- an annual fillthe-boot drive. Firefighters from Martin County and other agencies head out to parking lots to ask folks to fill firefighters’ boots with money.

And fill they do. “Our average weekend is $55,000 a weekend, over three days,” John Davidson, president of the union said. “One thing about Honor Flight, 100 percent of what we get off the street goes to Honor Flight,” he added. Davidson is also the operations coordinator for the local hub. He makes certain there are planes, buses, food, emergency medical care and anything else the veterans will need ready for them. He said veterans pay nothing for the Honor Flight trips, making fundraising critical. After all, Honor Flight isn’t getting a few tickets for each flight; it rents a whole plane. Sometimes two. “The whole flight with buses, police escorts and food, it’s about $80,000 a trip,” Davidson said. “The planes about $55,000, $60,000.” The average trip sends 85 to 90 veterans to D.C., Roberts said. In addition to volunteer guardians paying their ways, and the boot drive, Southeast Florida Honor Flight has other fundraisers through the year. But, Davidson said the hub still depends on people acting on their own. “If we didn’t have all the individual donations, we couldn’t do

A battle remembered And another one on the horizon as VA reduces WWII vet’s disability status By Barney P. Giordan FOR VETERAN VOICE

In the spring of 1944, the 28th Division, 109th Infantry, was was engaged in the Italian campaign at the crossing of the Volturno River. The Germans had stalled the allied forces in a last effort to save Rome. Action was furious, with day and night bombardment. Private Steven E. Munchak, a medic, was there. This was war! Munchak was born in Scranton, Penn., married, and a licensed mortician when drafted to the Army in 1943 at age 22. He had previous service with his unit from 1937 through 1939 with basic and medic training he was shipped with his unit to North Africa then to northern Sicily during the Montgomery campaign. In December 1943, the division moved on to Italy and in December 1943 on to eastern Italy (Anzio). By spring, the campaign was stalled with furious combat on both sides, a horrible stalemate. Rome was the allied goal but the Germans stood firm. The Volturno River was the battleground. Many bodies of dead soldiers were reported floating in this Italian river. Until Italy, Steve Munchak hadn’t experienced intense combat, though as a mortician, he was familiar with death. Conditions were minimal with two-person bunker living. The medical aid bunker wasn’t much bigger. The Axis forces made daily artillery barrages and night air raids with phosphorus clouds descending from German flares engulfing the battlegrounds. Here wounded and dying soldiers were tended to by Munchak, wounded and dying soldiers left a deep depression on him which today is termed “traumatic brain syndrome.” To this day, the 93-year-old veteran’s emotions arise when talking about war to the point of tears. His subsequent discharge was given on Oct. 30, 1944, on the basis of mental and physical disability which was classified as permanent. He returned home to his wife and a newborn baby girl. Years later, he retired from the post office and moved to Sebastian, where he now

resides. He tells an interesting story about the infamous “Axis Sally,” an American citizen broadcasting propaganda for the Axis forces in Rome to the Allied Forces. G.I. Joes were amused by her radio programs coming from the Excelsior Hotel in Rome. In March 1944, a task force was organized with the mission of capturing her at the Excelsior Hotel in Rome. Steve Munchak was included as its medic. Leaving the battle lines, working northwest to Rome, the task force braved screeching stuka dive bombing and German scouting along the approach. The attempt failed as “Axis Sally’’ eluded the troops that occupied the Excelsior Hotel. On the second floor, General Mark Clark established his planning area. In the next room was the medical aid station manned by Pvt. Steve Munchak ...

FLIGHT from page 4 this,” he said. “We’re looking at $250,000, really more like $300,000, a year to do this.” Surrounding everything Honor Flight does is a sense of urgency. It can’t last forever, because World War II veterans won’t. According to an Associated Press estimate, the once 16.1 million World War II veterans are dying at a rate of more than 1,100 a day. Only about 2 million are living, according to a recent report by the Department of Veterans Affairs. No one has an exact daily mortality count, but the VA, AP and others have developed the same estimate by using long-form census data, VA data, and standard mortality tables. The VA estimates that America will have almost no World War II veterans by 2020. If the oldest lives as long as Frank Buckles — the last surviving American World War I serviceman — America will lose its last World War II veteran in 24 years, 2037. Buckles died in 2011 at age 110. The youngest World War II veterans were born in 1927 and are 86. In addition to Honor Flight Southeast Florida there’s another local hub, Space Coast Honor Flight. That volunteer group takes 25 veterans a trip. It has a flight scheduled for Aug. 24. That flight will be from the Orlando International Airport. It also has flights scheduled for Sept. 28 and Oct. 19. Honor Flight Southeast Florida is on the web at honorflightsefl.org. Space Coast Honor Flight is at spacecoasthonorflight.org.

HEALTH from page 6 publications/benefits_book. VA’s health care system for veterans has no enrollment fee, no monthly premiums and no deductibles. Most veterans also have no out-of-pocket costs, though some may have small copayments for some health care or prescription drugs.  “VA will continue to provide veterans with high-quality, comprehensive health care and other benefits they have earned through their service,” said Dr. Robert Petzel, VA’s chief physician and undersecretary for health. The Affordable Care Act was created to expand access to coverage, reduce rising health care costs, and improve health care quality and care coordination.  The Affordable Care Act creates new opportunities for coverage for uninsured veterans and their families. There are more than 1.3 million veterans and more than 950,000 spouses and children of veterans without health insurance. Most uninsured veterans are eligible for VA health care. For those who are not eligible for VA care — such as veterans’ family members — the law created a new Health Insurance Marketplace. In 2014, the Marketplace will be a new way to shop for and purchase private health insurance. People who purchase insurance through the Marketplace may be able to lower the costs of health insurance coverage by paying lower monthly premiums.  For more information, visit www.healthcare.gov. For information about VA health care and the Affordable Care Act, VA encourages veterans and family members to visit the new website at www. va.gov/aca, or call 1-877-222VETS (8387), Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. or Saturdays from 11a.m. to 3 p.m., Eastern time.  The new website includes a Health Benefits Explorer, where veterans can learn about the benefits they can receive if they enroll in VA care.

MUNCHAK from page 5 One final item: Steven A. Munchak has been on 100 percent disability since his discharge in October 1944, but recently reduced to 80 percent by the Veterans Administration. Now they are trying to go further down to 60 percent to this wheelchair-confined veteran at age 93. Is that any way to treat a WWII veteran who served his country in combat?

with other chemicals. What we’ve done — we’ve eliminated all that with the discovery of a new type of silica that can be mixed with virtually anything.” The possibilities are broad. One is sure to be quite popular with most everyone. “The really cool thing is people can use less chemical pesticides,’ Williams said. “By using this product, you’re reducing the use of chemical pesticides.” Custom Agronomics does international sales from the Caribbean to Asia, but Florida remains its primary beat. The state has an abundance of two businesses that use its products — citrus and golf. Citrus more so than golf. “The average golf course uses our product on only three acres,” Williams said. “You look at a citrus grove; that’s 10,000 acres.” Florida is the second largest orange juice producer in the world. According to many reports, the state’s citrus industry generates about $9 billion in sales and creates about 75,000 jobs. While the industry is facing tremendous challenges with the continued and unrelenting spread of a plant disease commonly called citrus greening, it remains an economic powerhouse for the state. The bacterial infection is spread by the Asian citrus psyllid. On the golf side, Custom Agronomics has a rare swing to play. “We don’t sell to the golf courses,” Williams said. “We sell to the people who sell to the golf courses.” That is distributors dealing with a market that was hit hard by the recent protracted recession and slow recovery. They’re hungry for any and every advantage they can get to create customer loyalty. Custom Agronomics can not only custom formulate products for

distributors, but it can put them in bottles with their names. “We can go out to the distributers and offer them a full product line with their name on the labels,” Williams said. “They can build a brand in the marketplace. They can sell a product with their name on the package. We can even make literature pieces to support these products.” The formula has been a hit for the almost four-year-old company. It now has 10 workers and is tracking to do $3.5 million in sales this year. Dougher said the trend among economic-development circles in the last decade has been focusing on helping and attracting smaller, local companies, rather than investing resources on bringing in bigger companies. “Every big company in the world has started with 10 people,” he said. Dougher said that companies such as Custom Agronomics diversify the county’s economic base, helping to insulate it from large swings in particular industries. Williams said Martin County was a natural place to grow the company. It has easy access to major transportation routes and is close to a large customer base. “That’s where we’re hedging our bets — on the Florida agricultural market,” Williams said. He noted that citrus is just one product the state grows that uses Custom Agronomics products. It also has large strawberry, tomato and pepper production. Custom Agronomics has also benefited the county by targeting its employment. “We’ve been heavily involved with the (Business Development Board) with programs to help the unemployed that need skill training,” Williams said. The company is online at customagronomics.com.

VETERAN VOICE • THE VOICE OF EXPERIENCE • AUGUST 9, 2013 • 11

anD our obJeCtIVe

Veteran Voice is a weekly publication designed to provide information to and about veterans to veterans and to the broader community. Veterans are an integral part of their Florida communities, which currently have individual organizations of their own, such as the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the American Legion, the Vietnam Veterans of America and many other groups with a narrow focus, but no convenient way to connect to a wider population of veterans and to the community in general within a limited geographic area, their community. The mission of Veteran Voice is to publish a weekly source of information that will provide, in one place, a listing of resources available to veterans, articles about changes in policies or organizations affecting veterans and events of interest to veterans as well as articles about veterans of interest to the general public. Veteran Voice LLC is organized as a partnership of experienced newspaper executives with an interest in veterans and in the communities of Florida veterans and friends. Veteran Voice is a start-up intended to address a perceived lack of information readily available to veterans on programs and policies affecting them and objective reporting of veteran affairs to the public. To our knowledge, and based on comments from leaders of local veterans organizations, there was no media or website currently meeting this need until the launch of Veteran Voice. We hope you agree, and will support this publication with your subscription. Without subscriptions there will be a limited number of people we can help, without which this mission will not be realized. As part of our commitment to supporting local veteran communities, we will donate 10 percent of our profits each quarter to qualified veteran charities recommended by you, our readers and subscribers. Please let us know what you think by emailing news@veteranvoiceweekly.com or mailing your comments to us at 1919 S.W. South Macedo Blvd., Port St. Lucie, FL 34984.
