ATTN: LAKE COUNTY SMALL FOR-PROFIT BUSINESSES

The programs are meant to further economic development, preserve and create employment opportunities for Lake County residents, and support the operations of small businesses during a time of need and emergency.

This is my niece with her father's headstone... The first photo was taken just after my brother, Aaron, was KIA in Iraq. The second was taken in 2017 when we filmed my "Never Forgotten" PBR tribute video. She is graduating this year. May we never forget why we have the freedoms to chase our dreams in these great United States. #memorialday2020

620,310. Six hundred twenty thousand, three hundred ten.

This is the estimate of how many Americans have died in just the major battles the last 100 years, fighting for Freedom and fighting on the behalf of the people who cannot fight for themselves while serving in our Military.

Six hundred twenty thousand, three hundred ten.

Hundreds of thousands of families have lost Husbands, Fathers, Wives, Mothers, Sisters, Brothers, Sons and Daughters... And it is does not weigh lightly on the shoulders of this Marine.

So I want to say my Thank you, your losses and your sacrifices will have this country forever grateful!!!

Have a safe weekend everyone. ~PatchOps Actual

Despite the restrictions on Memorial Day ceremonies, we encourage our Veterans Posts and the community as a whole to pay tribute to our fallen in some way on Monday, May 25th. Please share how you honor our heroes with our page or the OH Department of Veterans Services. #OhioVets

A week prior to Memorial Day, Director Ashenhurst sent a memo to leadership in the statewide veteran community with suggested guidelines for proper ways to honor the fallen and recognize the sacrifice of our military on and around Memorial Day. ODVS knows there are lots of communities that will still want to have Memorial Day ceremonies and it is our hope that they still do so, but keeping in mind the precautions and protocols that are in place because of COVID-19.

Please send us photos and information after your Memorial Day event and we will try to post as many as we can to this page. Thank you for joining us in the fight during this crisis -- and thanks to all men and women of service, military families and our beloved #OhioVets.

Ohio and our nation lost a national treasure today, Annie Glenn, to COVID-19. The Ohio native, along with her legendary husband, John Glenn -- a 1993 Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame Honoree, decorated fighter pilot, senator and astronaut -- were strong supporters of the military, veterans and instrumental in bringing the National Veterans Memorial and Museum to Columbus. Annie was a champion for those with disabilities and spent her life in the service of others. Annie Glenn was 100.

A virtual memorial service will be held on Saturday, June 6, 2020, at 11 a.m. EDT. The service will be officiated by the Rev. Amy Miracle, pastor for the Broad Street Presbyterian Church in Columbus.

Additional details about the memorial service will be announced when finalized.

COVID-19 is affecting so many of us in so many ways. As a charity, we worry about how people will provide for themselves while businesses are closed, let alone consider donating to a charity this year. Fundraising events are being cancelled every day, too.

We also worry that the homeless population may increase. How will we help them all?

Thank you good people who work at and the customers of Ganley Subaru East! Through the awesome program Share the Love, generous donors donated $56, 898!

This will help us find the homeless and warm them for the next two seasons!

U.S. Army #Veteran, Jerry Stiller has passed away today.

After a stint in the Army toward the end of World War II, Stiller used the #GIBill to earn a bachelor's degree in speech and drama from the University of Syracuse in 1950. He earned small roles on Broadway and in Shakespeare festivals, but Stiller's career didn't take off until he teamed up with his wife, the late actress Anne Meara.

From the Ed Sullivan Show, Broadway, commercials, Seinfeld, and King of Queens Stiller continued to work through the 2000s, appearing alongside his son in "Zoolander 2" and voicing several animated series. The 92 year old actor’s popularity transcended generations and will continue to provide laughs for generations to come.

Stiller is survived by his son Ben, daughter Amy and two grandchildren.

The 910th Airlift Wing is launching a second ‘Hercs Over America’ flyover on Thursday, May 7, 2020, as a way for our Air Force Reserve family to continue to salute the thousands of healthcare workers, essential employees and other first responders on the front line of the battle against COVID-19.

The 910th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron received incredibly positive response from its ‘Hercs Over America’ flyover held on May 4, 2020. Since only a limited number of medical facilities could be flown over earlier this week, the 910th built a list of additional facilities based on feedback received from the wing’s community partners and social media followers to conduct a second ‘salute’ flyover.

This ‘salute’ flyover, consisting of two of the 910th’s C-130H Hercules aircraft, is scheduled to take place over the following medical facilities during the late morning hours of Thursday, May 7, 2020.

The 910th’s aircraft will kick off its second ‘Hercs Over America’ over Ohio’s North Shore area by flying over these health care facilities: University Hospitals Conneaut Medical Center in Conneaut, Ohio; Ashtabula County Medical Center in Ashtabula, Ohio; University Hospitals Geneva Medical Center in Geneva, Ohio; TriPoint Medical Center in Painesville, Ohio Cleveland Clinic – Euclid Hospital and University Hospitals Euclid Health Center in Euclid, Ohio and Cleveland Clinic Hill Crest Hospital in Mayfield Heights, Ohio.

The C-130s will then head to University Hospitals Portage Medical Center in Ravenna, Ohio; Summa Health Akron City Hospital in Akron, Ohio; Aultman Hospital in Canton, Ohio; Cleveland Clinic Union Hospital in Dover, Ohio; Aultman Alliance Community Hospital in Alliance, Ohio; Salem Regional Medical Center in Salem, Ohio and East Liverpool City Hospital in East Liverpool, Ohio; UPMC Jameson in New Castle, Pennsylvania; UPMC Horizon – Shenango Valley in Farrell, Pennsylvania and Sharon Regional Medical Center in Sharon, Pennsylvania.

The 910th aircraft will conclude this ‘Hercs Over America’ flyover in the skies of the Mahoning Valley with flyovers above Southwoods Medical Campus and Akron Children’s Hospital Beeghly Campus in Boardman, Ohio as well as Trumbull Regional Medical Center; Trumbull Memorial Hospital and Hillside Rehabilitation Center in Warren, Ohio.

The 910th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Office will contact each of the locations listed above directly to notify them of the approximate timeframe the flyover salutes will occur over their respective facilities.

As with many Air Force Reserve community engagement flying activities, these flyovers are scheduled to occur during one of the wing’s training missions and will incur no additional cost to taxpayers.

Area residents should be able to see the flyover from the safety of their homes, via media broadcasts or on the 910th’s social media platforms. The 910th encourages maintaining social distancing guidelines during this event. Area residents should also refrain from traveling to hospitals or gathering in large groups to view the flyover.

The Reserve Citizen Airmen of the 910th are proud to serve alongside the first responders and essential personnel in the battle against COVID-19. These selfless Americans on the front lines of COVID-19 response remind us that we are all in this together and we can rise to meet any challenge with unrivaled spirit and commitment.

We Remember and Salute Grand River Native
Coach Don Shula 1930-2020

“He was born Donald Francis Shula in Grand River, Ohio, on January 4, 1930. The son of Dan and Mary (Miller) Shula, he began playing football while still quite young and at the tender age of eleven was forbidden by his parents to play the game anymore after sustaining a bad facial cut during a neighborhood scrimmage. But Shula was not to be so easily dissuaded. In 1942 he forged his parents' signatures on a permission slip so that he could play football at school but was sidelined by a case of pneumonia just before the season began. Encouraged by an assistant coach to return to the game as soon as possible, a healthy Shula later rejoined the team but kept his football participation a secret from his parents until he was named a starter. As a senior at Thomas W. Harvey High School, Shula was named All-Ohio quarterback in 1946. He went on to become a star player at John Carroll University in Cleveland, gaining 125 yards in a 21-15 upset over Syracuse University. Recruited by a number of professional teams, Shula eventually signed with the Cleveland Browns for whom he played defense for the next couple of years before being traded in 1953 to the Baltimore Colts.

Shula spent three seasons with the Colts before being traded in 1956 to the Washington Redskins. His professional playing career ended in 1957. The following year he married Dorothy Bartish and joined the University of Virginia's football coaching staff as assistant coach. In 1959 he joined the coaching staff at the University of Kentucky and two years later broke into the professional coaching ranks when he signed on as defensive coordinator for the Detroit Lions. Shula spent two years with the Lions and in 1963 became the youngest head coach in NFL history when he agreed to lead the Baltimore Colts. Only thirty-three at the time, Shula wasted little time in making his mark with the Colts. In his second season at the helm of the Colts, he led the team to a 12-2 record and earned for himself the first of six Coach of the Year awards.”
( taken from: https://sports.jrank.org/pages/4427/Shula-Don-Born-in-Grand-River-Ohio.html)

Shula went on to win an NFL-record 347 games. He lead the Miami Dolphins to five Super Bowl appearances, winning twice. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton in 1997.
