John Myers is one of two recipients in 2015 for the Vietnam Veteran of the Year award. John is involved in many things in his community and the state of Wisconsin regarding all veterans. He has been a volunteer at the Highground Memorial, helped create a Veteran recognition at his place of employment, and also supported and assisted TSIO with our Vietnam Veterans' Day events. John and his wife also make a great team together. They have shared not only from the Veteran experience, but the family experience as well. John is so thoughtful. One year he on his own made a flowered vase for Thuy Smith and the Masters of Ceremony News Anchor Judy Clark. The last Vietnam Veteran event TSIO organized, John showed up on his own just to make sure he could be available to help out in some way. His timing that day couldn't have been any more perfect. He never sought out for an opportunity just to speak, but to be helpful in whatever way we needed help. This made it pleasant and a true joy to work with him. John also each year made a huge poster board for people to sign and always made a statement about remembering the Vietnamese and the Hmong. We love him for this!
Thank you John. In the "Vietnamese Tradition" we hereby acknowledge you as a #1 G.I.
People Making a Difference
Too many times there are people who do great things (big or small), but never get recognized. Sometimes its because people don't give proper credit to where credit is due and so other people's ideas, accomplishments, or other acts of "Greatness" never become known.
I admire those who do things without any thought except to do the right thing and to help someone in need. However, I feel it's important to acknowledge "Greatness" when we see it.
