TELL US YOUR STORY

This website is dedicated to
unsung heroes in our families
and in our lives

There are many who do something “above and beyond” for others when they didn’t really have to.  These “heroes” will do what’s right, sometimes just giving a stranger a hand; other times putting their life on the line—all without expecting compensation or recognition.  Examples abound.

Ironically, real heroes often don’t see themselves as such and don’t like to be referred to in those terms.  They don’t even see their acts as anything special, but they are special—to those who benefit from their actions and to those who witness them.

THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU TO SHARE YOUR STORY.  I invite you to tell us about the special people you encounter, or have encountered, in your life.  Who were they? What did they do? What difference did they make?  What can we learn?  By sharing, we can memorialize and be inspired by those who make the world a better place for everyone.

Marines Never Cry

Marines Never Cry: Becoming a Man When it Mattered. It’s our story – all of us who went to Vietnam, regardless of when, where, what we were doing or branch of service. Variations abound, but it’s all there – the before, during, and after. Zeke Hammond was us.

“NEVER have I been so pissed at a character, happy with him, sad with him, humbled by him and cried because of him. Well, Zeke Hammond, the lead character in Tim Hall’s book, Marines Never Cry, made me feel all those emotions. Hey, wait. Isn’t that what the lead character in a good book supposed to do? Excellent read!!”
