John Ellis is my grandfather and hero. He honorably served in the Korean Conflict and motivated me to serve my country as well. After the war, he raised 3 daughters and worked for three decades in the automotive industry until retirement. I’m proud to call him my grandfather and hero.

Noey F. Vineyard Jr. served our country in the U.S. Marine Corps for nearly two decades. And despite a laundry list full of medals and commendations he still won’t acknowledge that he is a hero despite action in Grenada, Sierra Leone and the Middle East. This quiet, gentle and unassuming man is the epitome of the great American Hero.

Thank you Noey, for all that you have done for our great country. Without your courage and your many sacrifices it might not have been possible for us to enjoy the joys of everyday life as a free and independent American Citizen as we do now.

Samuel Fish

Branch of Service: Army

Conflict: World War II (1939-1945)

Years of Service: 1942-1945

Sam was my father. I lost him on August 25 2010. He proudly served this nation in 5 campaigns of WWII in the European Theater as a Recon Squad leader with “B” Troop, 15th Cavalry Recon Group.
Our friends in the American Legion,VFW, and Marine Corp League came together to remember a quite home town hero. The sign in front of the church on the day of his funeral summed Dad up…..Father,Brother,Uncle, Friend. Goodbye Daddy, we will never forget you.

Spc Jennifer Pawlowski

Branch of Service: Army

Conflict: Gulf War (1991)

Years of Service: 9

Jennifer, my wife, is my hero! So many don’t realize how much women do in Our military from pass to present. She always was there to complete the mission and always willing to help others. Now, she is not just my wife but my caregiver as well. Since I’m a disabled Veteran that is house-bound, she takes care of everything. From our 2 children that she cares for to making sure I am as well. No man could handle what she has done while serving Our Country to taking care of me. She is a true Hero in all the definitions of the word. I love you baby and thank you for all you’ve done for Our Countries’ freedom!
