Air Patrol major helps two people in two weeks, but says he is not a hero
WILLMAR -- Gerald Kleene, of rural Maynard, has been in the right place at the right time lately, helping a man who was injured when in a motorcycle vs. deer crash and a child who was choking on a piece of candy.
Kleene, a pilot and a major in the Wesota Composite Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol, says he's not a hero.
"We are prepared to meet everyday needs," he said Thursday. "This happened to be one of the needs."
