Don Pogany and Arturo Cubacub had the honor of taping World War II veterans aboard an Honor Flight to Washington, D.C., for the soldiers’ first visit to the World War II Memorial.
Pogany, a former DDB creative director who runs Sticky: The Idea Agency, was approached by a friend, who volunteers for Honor Flight, to tape the upcoming event.
