La Crosse, Wisconsin (WXOW) - We have sad news to report in connection with the Return to Pearl Harbor honor trip. Pearl Harbor survivor Mark Schaitel of Sparta had a heart attack and passed away on the flight.
You may recall, we spoke with Mark about his thoughts before leaving. We know visiting Pearl Harbor was important to him and he was looking forward to the journey.
Our thoughts are with his family. Mark Schaitel was 89-years old.
