Our service members risk their lives to protect our freedoms and we are forever indebted to them. #NVHeroes is designed to recognize and honor active duty military and veterans living in Nevada's 4th District every month because it's never too late to say "thanks." Join me in a monthly celebration of the service of Nevada's active duty military and veterans.
- Nominees must be a current or former military member
- An individual can receive nominations from multiple people, but they are only able to be recognized once
- Those recognized as our #NVHeroes will receive a quilt made by Quilts with Valor and a certificate with Congressional Recognition; this will also be shared on social media
Questions about the nomination? You can contact Samantha Bivins at Samantha.Bivins@mail.house.gov or 702-963-9361
More on NVHeroes
When our military members answer the call to serve, they face the risk of not knowing whether they will come home. This was definitely a challenge for Chief Warrant Officer 2 Mike Newton (Army Ret.). Mike served in the United States Air Force from 1977 to 1988 as an EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) Technician. After separating from the Air Force, he then served in the United States Army from 1988 to 1994. Currently, Mike is a contract employee with the DOD, where he is once again in the EOD field.
With this month being Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, it seemed only fitting for us to honor two exceptional Veterans with our #NV Hero Award for September 2019.
TSgt. Losalio was born in Hilo, Hawaii and decided to join the Air Force so that he could travel, become more educated and gain worldly experience. He has been stationed in Montana, Korea and South Carolina. From 2003-2004 he was a member of the Air Force’s touring entertainment ensemble, Tops in Blue and travelled around the country performing Motown tunes for airmen and their families.
