Wednesday Hero

This Week's Wednesday Hero Was Brought To My Attention By Reader Seaspook

Information Systems Technician 1st Class Lamarr Hawkins is a hero not for what he's done on the battlefield, but rather for what he's done back in the States. Lamarr Hawkins had recently build a home that he was planning on renting out as in investment. But rather than do that, Mr. Hawkins donated the home to a family who had lost everything last year in Hurricane Katrina. Bernice Stepter and her daughter Dianne, who's deaf and blind, was taken in by Hawkins mother after the hurricane. When Lararr Hawkins heard about what happened to the family he game them the home that he had built.
"It was the right thing to do. If I wanted to be of some help, this is what I could do."

These brave men and women do more than just risk their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.

If you have a loved who has served or is currently serving in the armed forces, and would like for me to profile them as a Wednesday Hero, I would be proud to. Just email me with some info and a photo.
We Have Every Right To Dream Heroic Dreams.
Those Who Say That We're In A Time When There Are No Heroes, They Just Don't Know Where To Look
