Clintonville man passionate about fellow veterans

Visit with Richard Beggs, and you soon learn that he is passionate about his hometown and its future, but just as much so, he is passionate about veterans getting the appreciation they deserve for the sacrifices they have made.

In 1986, after having served 27 years as an officer, Richard Beggs returned to his home town of Clintonville. A year later he was asked to be the keynote speaker for the annual Memorial Day program at Graceland Cemetery.

Living the Venture

Aaron Smith was a good student, but traveling the world has given him a great education in the needs of people everywhere.

After graduating from Shawano Community High School in 1999, Smith earned a degree in journalism at North Central University in Minnesota.

During the summer of 2002 some friends approached him about doing a bicycle tour for a humanitarian mission project. He declined because he had to work, but later he prayed about it.

"I felt like I needed to do it and do it for a cause," Smith said.
