EXCHANGE-MILITARY TRAVEL GIFT
NEW GLARUS, Wis. _ Ben Jackson — the middle child in a family of five, the fourth generation of his family to enlist in the military, the one who built model airplanes as a boy — died April 13, 2018, in a motorcycle crash on Misawa Air Base, about 450 miles north of Tokyo. He was 20. The Jackson family didn’t want flowers at the funeral. Instead, they encouraged guests to donate to the Ben Jackson Foundation, a nonprofit that has raised thousands of dollars in the past year for other young military men and women from south-central Wisconsin communities to fly home and see their families.
