Tribute to Those Who Served - William Buchholz

United States Air Force Lieutenant Colonel William Buchholz flew in 199 drop missions in the Vietnam War.  He survived a plane crash into the ice in Newfoundland where he and his unit were rescued two weeks later.  When he came home from the Vietnam War, he was told he shouldn’t wear his uniform, but he did.  “I’m proud of my uniform,” he said.  And First Bank was definitely proud to feature this highly decorated veteran in the tribute video at the St. Louis Blues game on Jan. 10, 2023.
