Local Veteran Named Military Hero of the Year

Shaw Realty honors a local veteran naming him military hero of the year. Shaw Realty held a contest for military hero of the year– giving the community a chance to nominate a local veteran. The award is meant for the community to come together and honor our local heroes.
Forty local businesses partnered to give the award to local veteran and peer coordinator with the Crossroads Area Veterans Center, Mike Allen.

“It feels amazing Caleb really surprised me. He said it was another veteran that we went to pick up but its truly an honor I don’t do what I do for honors or accolades. i do it to help back and give back to my community and country,” said Allen.

This is the third out of five awards in the “Honor our Heroes”series– previous awards being law enforcement, military and fire fighter awards.
there will be more awards in the coming months.
