Hometown Heroes

Don Van Elzen maintains a happy and healthy lifestyle at 90-years-old by going to church everyday, and eating apples. The Van Elzen’s are known throughout the area for their apple orchards and Don worked in the family business for years before being drafted in the Korean War. 

Local 5’s Nate Stewart sat down with Don at his home along Lake Winnebago to hear more about his service in the U.S. Army.
