Ewalt Shatz, a Pearl Harbor veteran was on his way to Hawai’i to take part in a ceremony on Saturday to commemorate events there 72 years ago. Well until United AIrlines bumped him from their flight because, well…you read it for yourself from Hawaii News Now;
We have received unconfirmed reports that despite telling employees that he was a veteran on his way to Hawaii for a memorial at the Arizona Memorial on December 7, a war veteran named Ewalt Shatz was bumped off of United Airlines flight 1226 from Los Angeles International Airport to Honolulu on Wednesday because the plane was overweight.
