Retired Lt. Col. John Newhouse poses with his wife Janice and a photograph taken of him before one of the many planes he piloted during his tenure in the Air Force.

After suffering a stroke in 2014, John Newhouse II has been unable to walk or talk. But that wasn't always the case — there was a time when he soared with the eagles.

The retired lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Air Force, a Dundee resident, saw extensive action during the Vietnam War, including some action he probably would rather forget.
