SUPERIOR, WI (KDAL) - A World War Two veteran from Florida will visit the Bong Veterans Historical Center this week thanks to the Denver based non profit group "Wish of a Lifetime".  The organization fulfills life enriching wishes of deserving seniors, making more than 600 wishes come true for seniors all across the country since 2008.  Irving Polan was part of the 9th Squadron of the 49th Fighter Group, the same squadron that Major Richard Bong was in.  Polan armed the aircraft that Bong flew as he became America's "Ace of Aces" in the Pacific Theater.  The 90 year old Polan will be speaking to some students about his experiences on Thursday and will give an oral history to the Center's Executive Director Bob Fuhrman.  He will also be a part of the Friday "Flag of Honor" ceremony in remembrance of the 5th Air Force veterans.
