PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Ken Vegely loves to fly, and he has a deep abiding respect for the country’s servicemen and women.
So when he came across a charity raffle for a 1975 Beechcraft Sierra, he saw no downside in taking a chance. After all, it was for a veteran’s organization called Winged Warriors.
“If you didn’t win it was a benefit to veterans. How could you lose? If you lost, somebody else gained,” said Vegely, of North Huntingdon.
As it turned out, Vegely didn’t win, and apparently, neither did anyone else.
The only one who did gain was Jason Wirtzer, the director of Winged Warriors, who claimed he has taught dozens of vets to fly.
KCBS’s David Goldstein: “Can you prove you’ve trained 25 vets? You can’t, can you?”
Wirtzer: “I’d like to.”
Recently, reporter David Goldstein, of our CBS Los Angles-affiliate KCBS, confronted Wirtzer about Winged Warriors claims.
