Doc Kritzer is well-known in Callaway County for many reasons. Primarily, he’s a county commissioner, but he’s served in a variety of other service roles, including as volunteer for the county fire department for several decades. One way Doc has served his community, however, may not be as well-known.
“The Central Missouri Honor Flight group has gone on 29 flights. I’ve been a volunteer escort on 11 of those,” said Doc. “I was inspired to start volunteering by my daughter, who’s an Air Force flight nurse out of Dayton, Ohio, where the Honor Flights originated. I also do it in memory of my own father, who fought in WWII.”
