St. Louis Honor Flight Program

A Tribute to the Greatest Generation

First Bank partnered  with the Greater St. Louis Honor Flight (GSLHF) and the St. Louis Blues for “First Bank’s Tribute to the Greatest Generation.”  GSLHF honors St. Louis area veterans’ service to our country by providing an all-inclusive trip to Washington, DC to visit the memorials built in their honor.  

Through the 2017-2018 season, we paid tribute to a different veteran each month.  The veterans were proudly introduced to cheering fans.  Our goal is to not only honor these veterans but to raise awareness of the Honor Flight program.  

First Bank made a donation to GSLHF each time the Blues scored first and every time the team won during the 2017-2018 season. As a result, First Bank made a $9,202 donation to GSLHF during the 2017-2018 season.

Laurence Lumpe (Private 1st Class, US Army)

 



First Bank is pleased to salute World War II and Korean War Veteran Laurence Lumpe (Private 1st Class, US Army) in First Bank’s Tribute to the Greatest Generation. Mr. Lumpe was assigned to the American Graves Registration and was sent to what is now Florence, Italy. It was his job to exhume bodies and to try to find evidence to identify fallen soldiers so their families could be notified. He also investigated plane crashes.
