Stories of Service
They protect and save us.
We admire them and aspire to be like them. In uniform, in our communities, in every branch of the military, our heroes give their all —and sometimes the ultimate sacrifice.
These are their stories. On the eleventh of every month, we celebrate these selfless men and women with profiles of their service. Reflecting on their accomplishments and respecting each challenge overcome. Take note. Take pride. Please join us in honoring them here.
A Community Comes Together to Honor Those Who Serve
“The parade is one of those things where you’re very thankful that the community is here to support you and honor our children and the sacrifices that they made and the family sacrifices that we have,” said Jeanette Middleton-Sudano, Gold Star Mother to Nate McDavitt. The community in Severna Park comes together on Independence Day to honor the service and sacrifice of those in their community and across the country.
