NORTHWOODS - You might remember this story from more than a year ago.
A Vilas County Korean War veteran waited 60 years to get his Purple Heart. Private David Masiakowski was hit by a grenade shell. He carried his foxhole partner on his back to safety and was blinded in one eye.
In February 2012, his service was recognized with a purple heart.
But now, David needs someone to carry him.
Newswatch 12 spoke with David's daughter Trisha Scarlotto, who now lives in Kentucky, Tuesday night.
She explained David is in the hospital in Eagle River and has just six months to live.
Her father's one remaining desire is to get to Milwaukee to live out his days closer to family down there. But he needs a pilot to fly him down and has limited resources and time.
Trisha is reaching out to anyone in the Northwoods who would be willing to fly her father from Eagle River to Milwaukee one last time.
If you or someone you know can help, please call Trisha at 763-561-7602.
Trisha says time is of the essence. The family thanks you for your generosity.
SHAWANO COUNTY - UPDATE 5:13 p.m.--Police say six people, including children, were taken to area hospitals after two sport utility vehicles carrying Boy Scouts crashed in Shawano County.
The accident happened Saturday morning on Highway 29 near Bonduel.
Police say one of the SUVs was towing a trailer with equipment. The driver of that vehicle went off the roadway then overcorrected and lost control. The second SUV hit the first, and both went off the road. The trailer flipped and the second SUV landed partially on top of the first.
Bonduel police Chief Todd Chaney tells the Green Bay Press Gazette that one of the injured, a troop leader, was airlifted to St. Vincent's Hospital in Green Bay with a head injury.
Chaney said he didn't think any of the injuries were life threatening.
