Heroes Page

Welcome to the Heroes Page.  Do you know a hero?  Sure you do, we all do.  There are heroes all around us; moms, dads, grandparents, military, veterans, first responders, teachers and even dogs.  Well now is your chance to recognize your hero and share this special person or animal with us… This page is solely dedicated to our heroes and nothing but heroes… So, what are you waiting for?  Tell us a little bit about your hero…  

If you have a picture of your hero, you can submit it to al66888@yahoo.com and we’lll try and post it. 


  1. For me, I’ve had the privilege to know several heroes during my military career… However, my first hero I would like to share with you is not from my career, but from my personal life. I met him in the year 2000, how did I meet him? I met this hero through his grandaughter, who is now my wife. This hero’s name is George “Pa” Gosha, a WWII Veteran who lived for his family, his country and his fishing… From the start, we hit it off great and our relationship grew…

    Throughout my life, I only had one grandpa who was a great man and is deeply missed. You see, when my grandpa passed, it really felt like something was missing, our family’s leader was gone. So when I met “Pa”, I felt like I belonged, he made me feel like I was part of his family. “Pa” would share stories from his days in the military and how life was different back then. In between the jokes, he would talk to me about raising a family and the importance of creating a stable enviroment for my children. I remember during one of our “guy talk” moments, he told me “son, a man’s success is not measured by his money, but by the family that he’s created”… Needless to say, “Pa” gave me a whole new perspective on what it means to love your family and fight for your country.

    Not only was “Pa” a WWII Veteran, he was also a husband, a father, a grandfather and a great-grandfather, he was blue-collar, a hard worker, who always made sure his family had food on the table and clothes on their backs. When I married his grandaughter, his namesake, ”Pa” was understandably nervous and concerned about his little girl, who he helped raise. But the greatest compliment and respect I received from this great man, is that in his eyes, I had earned his trust to take care of her and the family we would create together…

    Today, Old Glory is cased to standards and stands guard over his favorite chair, while his body is at rest a mile away. Today, his family lives on, while keeping him close to their hearts and in their minds. Today, when I see his old tractor sitting there, begging me for a drive through his garden, I think back and I am grateful that our paths were destined to cross. Today, I will try to become half the man that my hero once was. Today, I will listen closely to his beloved wife’s words about the life of a man, a Veteran and a fallen hero, who became my grandpa…
