Richard Wallace, PV2
CBRN Specialist U.S. Army

To me this person is a hero because he is fighting not only for the U.S. but he is also fighting for the ones he loves. He is risking everything for people he doesn't know.

He didn't have a great life growing up and instead of letting his life go down hill after he graduated, he enlisted in the Army and is now fighting for our freedom, and bringing peace to other countries.

He is fighting for what he believes in and he is my hero. Knowing that he is fighting to keep me safe helps me sleep easy at night.
