Last month, an extremely thoughtful blogger named Sarah nominated our hometown hero Spc. Brandon Rork for the VA Mortgage Center 2007 American Hero Award. He’s one of ten finalists, all veterans of service in either Iraq or Afghanistan, and as Sarah blogged, “I was thrilled to learn he was chosen as a finalist and that has already net him a sweet $500 prize.”
Now what’s at stake is the big $5,000 prize, and we can all help Brandon win it by voting for him once a day at this VAMortgageCenter website. Just scroll down the page until you get to Brandon Rork, then click on “read more” to see the letters both his parents and his commanding officer wrote about his heroism, then VOTE for him.
Be sure to visit Sarah’s blog The Front Porch Swing to see photos of Brandon, the view from his watch that fateful night on his post, and the terrorist’s truck he stopped from exploding.
Also, by clicking on the email option directly below, you can send this blog to your friends and family members so we can rack up some big winning numbers for Brandon. And don’t forget, you can vote once a day until the poll is closed.
