Community Heroes: James Campbell, Wausau, WI and Mike Thompson, Junction City, WI – Never Forgotten Honor Flight
Mike and James are responsible for organizing the Never Forgotten Honor Flight, which are one-day, round trips to Washington D.C. for World War II veterans to see their memorial. Many of these veterans would never have been able to make it there on their own without this opportunity. Mike and Jim raised donations from donors of all kinds including corporations, small businesses, foundations and individual citizens, as well as wheel chairs loaned by King Veterans Home, Aspirus Wausau Hospital and Ministry Health Care.
The Community Hero Award is sponsored by Ministry Health Care.
