Hero of the Week

David Cowger, US Coast Guard


David was nominated by his wife, Jessica:

My husband has been in the CG for 4 years. His career started out perfectly then he got injured and he was super fit and his health was perfect. Now he’s overweight, getting medical boarded out due to an injury that wasn’t treated correctly and now after a year he is being treated but has been diagnosed with depression and other multiple ailments. He is pushing through everyday to support our son and me. He is trying to set stuff up for us on the outside but all we know anymore is military. Him working odd hours and being home at a certain time working 70+ hours a week, thankfully has slowed down since his injury but he is my hero forever and for always and I am very appreciative for him for supporting our family. (The picture I submitted is us at our wedding 3.5 years ago)
