This Sunday, Sept. 20 at 10 a.m. the Rotary Clubs of Newton and Stow will be helping to recognize the service and sacrifice of Auburndale native Corporal. Richard Likely.
Cpl. Likely was killed in Vietnam in April 1971 before he had the chance to meet his unborn daughter Val.
On Sunday Val Likely will be presented with her father’s military medals, a US flag that flew over the Capitol Building in his honor, and a proclamation from the mayor’s office.
The short ceremony will be held on the Richard A. Likely Memorial Bridge, which spans the Mass Pike on Auburn Street in Auburndale (just up the hill from Tom’s Pizza, Boca Bella Restaurant and the Knotty Pine).
More information about Cpl. Likely is available at The Virtual Wall
