This week's Wednesday Hero is from Gary, Indiana, and his name is Chief Warrant Officer Michael Zanders. He is with the Army's D-Trp 1/17th Calvary. He is an amazing man. When he went to rescue a beleaguered combat outpost, he ended up having to rescue his fellow rescuers. Below is some very interesting information about our Hero of the week.
Hometown: Gary, IN.
Awarded: Bronze Star

While he has received the Bronze Star for his service in this mission, he is awaiting the Distinguised Flying Cross for which he also earned. Please read about him. You will see why we call them, respectfully and deservedly, Heroes.
Thank you for your service, Chief Warrant Officer 4 Michael Zanders. I shall be praying for your unit and you. Please be careful out there, and keep your head down and your powder dry!
