Photo: Surprise visit

Posted: September 13, 2013 - 11:12am  |  Updated: September 15, 2013 - 10:41am
Richard Creary - a resident at South Peninsula Hospital Long term Care unit, 1963 Kenai High School graduate and a retired U.S. Air Force technical sergean - was interrupted while watching a western on television the morning of Aug. 31. It was an interruption he didn't mind, however. His grandson, Kyle Foree, a running back for the Kenai Kardinals, and the entire team of players and coaches surprised Creary with a visit before Kenai's afternoon game against the Homer Mariners. Kardinal coach Jim Dawson presented Creary with a Kardinal shirt, announcing they were making Creary an honorary captain of the team. "I don't like officers," said Creary, drawing a laugh. Before leaving, the team shook Creary's hand, and, one at a time, thanked the veteran for his service to the country.  McKibben Jackinsky
