Lucroy Visits With Navy Veteran in Spring Training

Today, Jonathan Lucroy surprised Bill Varner, a retired Navy Air Traffic Controller who completed three tours of Vietnam.

Bill had previously met Jonathan on an Honor Flight from Milwaukee to Washington, D.C. and his son-in-law Skip arranged for today’s meeting when he heard that Bill would be traveling to Arizona for Spring Training.

Jonathan has supported our troops for many years. From his work with Fisher House Wisconsin, inviting wounded heroes to home games each month as his guest, to giving more than $20,000 in scholarships to military families and his work with the Stars & Stripes Honor Flight, his unwavering support of the men and women in uniform is commendable and today was no exception.

Jonathan met with Bill before today’s game . The pair spent some time talking together and Jonathan gave Bill an autographed baseball.
