Yesterday was such an honor to be present to see our good friend, Daniel “Doc” Jacobs receive his long-awaited bronze star. On the top deck of the USS Midway in downtown San Diego, CA, the wind circled softly around friends and family who traveled from all over to be here on this special day. Amongst the crowd were the family members of the late Adam Zanutto and Timothy Melia who proudly served our country and the namesakes of Doc and Nina’s son. As a family formed by armed service we know many a loss and have mourned the death of young lives taken too soon. What a beautiful moment it was to come together to honor Doc and be surrounded by smiles.
This celebration is just the beginning. The Doc Jacob Foundation has great plans to make this world a better place turning tragedy into triumph and mourning into motivation to help as many veterans as possible.
