War veteran, Nestor of Norwegian aviation history and former President of Nordmanns-Forbundet/Norwegians Worldwide, Wilhelm Mohr, has reached 95 years.
In connection with the 4th of July celebrations in the Frogner park, he lay down a wreath at the Abraham Lincoln monument.
Nordmanns-Forbundet/Norwegians Wolrdwide have since the monument was given to the city of Oslo by the Norwegians in North Dakota, USA, in 1914, layed down a wreath every Independence Day. This year the day will be celebrated in the park Sunday July 1st, but Wilhelm Mohr started the celebration Thursday June 28 when he layed down the wreath at the monument.
