First Choice Credit Union raises funds for local veterans
By Hub City Times staff
MARSHFIELD – First Choice Credit Union, Marshfield, will help two local veterans gain access to the Never Forgotten Honor Flight.
The business held a ribbon cutting and brat/soda giveaway in the fall, where the community was given the opportunity to donate funds to be designated for the Never Forgotten Honor Flight. First Choice agreed to match $500 for each veteran sponsored.
On Nov. 1, $1,000 was donated to Jim Campbell, Honor Flight VP of Marketing, in the names of Marshfield veterans, Dennis Kmiec and Fred Lewin.
Kmiec and Lewin are both Vietnam veterans, with Kmiec serving in the Army and Lewin in the Navy. They both sit on the waitlist for the Honor Flight, along with over 1,000 other Vietnam veterans.
