Hero of the Week

Eric Counterman-Jobbs, US Army

Counterman-Job, Eric

Eric is my younger brother.  He is the oldest of my two younger brothers.  He has come so far and has done a whole 360 change from his late teenage years.

I look up to him because he is married, and has three kids, two of which are twins.  He stays positive all of the time.  When I need advice on anything, he always has an answer.  After he “grew up” and took the initiative to join our military, I realized how strong he was in every aspect.  He influenced our youngest brother to join the military, and he is now currently in training in Texas at the Air Force base.

Eric has been through so much, it amazes me how level-minded he is.  He provides for his family and works hard.  He transformed into a man, and I am so proud of him.  Whenever I need help, he is always there.  It hurt me when he told me that they might not reinstate his orders, and that would’ve meant that he wouldn’t have a job, however they did and that was a true blessing.  He is one of the strongest people I have ever known.  He truly deserves to be recognized. He helps so many others, with whatever they ask with no problem.  After our grandfather died years ago, I never thought I would say this again, but Eric is my true hero.
