Another area veteran will be able to take advantage of next Monday’s Never Forgotten Honor Flight thanks to an area Boy Scout Troop.
This past Tuesday, several members of Troop 548 here in Tomahawk presented a check for $500. This is the cost to sponsor the flight for Jim Likwarz. They surprised him at that meeting Tuesday with the donation, and also presented him with framed certificate in his honor.
Likwarz is a member of Bronsted Searl Post 93; the post has sponsored the boy scout troop for nearly 80 years. The troop says they did this to show appreciation for all the support they have received from the legion post.
According to honor flight organizers, this is the first veteran to be sponsored by a Boy Scout Troop.
