We are thankful for the men and women who have sacrificed so much and fought for our freedom. Will you join SPIRIT and recognize some of our local Military Heroes? Today we are recognizing Thomas Hixson. Read below to see what his wife, Saira, said about him:
Thomas is my husband. He is our hero. Shortly after high school he joined the USMC. He bravely served our country, doing 2 tours in Afghanistan. On December 16th, 2011 while out on patrol during deployment his truck hit an IED. He was medivaced for treatment of his wounds and after a month of hospital care went right back out to the front lines to join his team. After that deployment he was honorably discharged, with numerous medals including a Purple Heart. Through the grace of God he is still here with me and our beautiful children. He will forever be our hero.
SPIRIT 105.3 would like to thank GEICO for helping us recognize Military Heroes.
