Meet Jerry Lang, He’s Our November ‘Veteran of the Month’ [WATCH]

Subscribe to 98.1 Minnesota’s New Country on

Meet Jerry Lang from Sauk Rapids, he’s our November ‘Veteran of the Month.’ Lang was nominated by his daughter Linnea who had this to say about him;

I am nominating my dad because he served in the United States Army for 43 years till he retired as a Major General. He served in Iraq and Bosnia for a year each. He drove to Camp Ripley and the Cities a lot for weekends. After he got promoted to Major General, he traveled to Huntsville, Alabama a lot. He also helps with the flights to Washington D.C. for the veterans every year. This is why I am nominating my dad. “

Jerry Lang joined the army in 1971 and continued to serve until 2014, retiring as a Major General. He served on the board of directors for the Freedom/Honor Flights, which takes veterans to Washington D.C. every year. He also helps coordinate the MIA/POW hot air balloons that fly over central Minnesota each year, also part of the Freedom Flight program.

Lang is very modest, saying “we’re just old soldiers” when referring to his Major General rank in the Army.

Lang also puts time into the Special Olympics in central Minnesota, where his daughter Linnea participates in Special Olympics bowling throughout the year. They currently live in Sauk Rapids and Jerry continues to volunteer his time to helping our troops and veterans.

The ‘Veteran of the Month’ is brought to you by the Clearwater Travel Plaza – on 98-1 Minnesota’s New Country.
