AUGLAIZE COUNTY, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) – Imagine growing up in a family of 18: 9 brothers and 9 sisters.

“When you sleep four in a bed, you’re pretty close,” Richard said.

“I remember coming home a lot of times after being out at night and seeing my mom praying,” he said, “and I knew why.”

The Klosterman family lived that. Just recently, those brothers got the thank you they didn’t get when they served through the Honor Flight Dayton.
