Scout Troops Presents Check For Veteran Submitted: 05/07/2013
Tomahawk - It takes kids a long time to save up hundreds of dollars. Time and dedication. One Northwoods Boy Scout Troop proved they have plenty of both tonight honoring a veteran with money for an Honor Flight trip. Boy Scout Troop 548 of Tomahawk presented a certificate to veteran Jim Lik-warz at American Legion Post 93. The troop also presented a check to Jim Campbell of the Never Forgotten Honor Flight. Likwarz had no idea this was happening tonight. "This is a very big surprise and an honor they asked me to be here tonight and I had no reason why," Likwarz said. "It's quiet a surprise, pleasant surprise and an honor." Likwarz also was sponsored by 4th and 5th grade Tomahawk Middle School.
