Hero of the Week

Joshua Manning, Navy

Joshua Manning, Navy

I would like to nominate my Hero cousin, AZ1(AW/SW) Joshua Manning. Originally from Fort Payne, Alabama, he has served in the Navy since February 1995 and now makes Norfolk, Va his home. He has deployed worldwide over half a dozen times, being boots on ground in Iraq and Kosovo.

Besides being a combat vet, sworn Law Enforcement Officer, educator and overall Mans-Man, he volunteers countless hours every week helping veterans throughout Hampton Roads providing basic welfare checks, driving them to the VA hospital, providing meals, transportation to/from errands and also assistance with home maintenance and yard work along with 4 his closest friends which are also local area Law Enforcement Officers.

He and his friends are also local musicians in a Norfolk based band playing the Tidewater and Northern VA music scenes and donate all profits to the Wounded Warrior Foundation and National Law Enforcement Officer Memorial Fund.


We would like to show that appreciation to the Military Hero each week with a small token or our appreciation. More...
