And from Dwight's sister, Lauren Broeman, we received the following e-mail:
"Frank was my grandfather, as well. I used to love to hear the stories of his flights through China, as well as South America. I agree with my brother, Dwight Broeman....he was by far the most interesting and knowledgeable man I have ever known."
Dwight and Lauren will be providing more information about their grandfather, Frank, - pictures, too! Please check back for the next update on Captain Frank J. Havelick.
