  • John Mihalcak

    John Mihalcak

    Not sure., Merchant Marines | Two years.
    New Middletown, Ohio
    I didn't know how much it meant to be a veteran when I was a child and could still talk to my grandfather about his service. He was proud of having fought in the war and was even more proud when the Merchant Marines were finally recognized for their military service. I vote in his honor because he inspired me to care about the country we live in and to not take freedom for granted. My grandfather witnessed men die so we could all stay free and he carried that pain throughout his life. To make sure his comrades did not die in vain I will continue to vote in John Mihalcak's memory.

    I am voting in Honor of my husband's service to our Country during the Korean Conflict. I am very proud of the fact he sacrificed his time, and gave up the comforts of home to serve and protect our freedoms, not knowing what his years in the Navy on an aircraft carrier would bring. I am honored to be his wife and partner and I sincerely thank him for his service.
