If you would like to know the story of the Jean Nicolet, here's a site for you to check out. But I warn you, it's not pretty. This is real torture and atrocities.

These brave men and women have given 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.

Those Who Say That We're In A Time When There Are No Heroes, They Just Don't Know Where To Look
