Sean Brady was nominated by his wife, Amber :
My husband Sean Brady joined the US Navy 5 years ago. He has had such a hard road these last 5 years. You hear all of these wonderful stories of great commands and great duty stations all over great places. But there is also the stories where nothing has gone right or as promised or according to plan. This has been his journey. He has spent more time away from his family than he has been home since 2008. He has missed the birth of one of his children and missed saying goodbye to dear family members along the way. He has made such a huge sacrifice signing that contract and he has not backed down from his duties as a sailor, husband, and father. I really feel like he deserves to be acknowledged for his time and effort these last 5 years.
