Military Heroes takes great pleasure in honoring military heroes. We have designated a special area of our web site for this purpose. There are thousands of everyday heroes. As much as we would like to acknowledge all of the American heroes, space does not allow it. Please note that we hold all of you in high esteem.

We will be featuring some of the men and women who are being highlighted by the Department of Defense who have gone above and beyond in the war on terror. There are so many men and women serving our nation as well as their family members who deserve to be designated as heroes. A hero is a person who is distinguished by exceptional courage, nobility and strength. We believe that the families of those serving in the war on terror are heroes too.

We are honored to be working with Toyota, USA. This outstanding company was one of only fifteen employers honored with the prestigious 2005 ESGR Freedom Award. In the words of Jim Press, President of Toyota: “We greatly appreciate the sacrifice made by the men and women of our Armed Services and understand the importance of supporting them to the fullest extent possible.

We are also pleased to let you know that Toyota’s has a “Hire a Hero Program nationwide and offers excellent employment opportunities at over 1400 dealers. They will be recognizing and awarding prizes to heroes. Toyota USA is an awesome employer. Please check out their employment opportunities on our web site by clicking here.

Please also nominate your hero for monthly prizes by clicking here. We hope you will read the profiles below provided by the Defense Department on these heroes in the war on terror.
