This month’s My Military Hero is U.S. Army SGT Jon Hawkins of Phoenix. SGT Hawkins was nominated by his wife Christine. SGT Hawkins is a father of two and is currently stationed at Guantanamo Bay. In his free time, SGT Hawkins enjoys spending time outdoors, riding quads, barbequing and spending time with family and friends. My husband Jonathan Hawkins joined the Marine Corps in 1995. After a knee injury he left the Corps. In 2002, after the birth of our son and 9/11 he reenlisted into the Army and continued his passion of serving his country. He was wounded and medevac'd home. After being discharged he joined the Army reserves to be able to continue serving. He was called back to Active Duty to serve overseas supporting Operation Enduring Freedom. He breaths the military and will do what needs to be done to protect our freedoms. And as a military family we stand behind him and support him 100% even with the many days away he has to be from us. When he is home he has volunteered many hours and events that support our military to show that we have support here at home and we are not forgotten.
