United States Marine Pfc.
Ryan Jerabek, 18, Hobart , WI

At just 18-years-old, Ryan dreamed about his future. Even before graduating from Pulaski High School in 2003, he had already made plans to join the Marines. After serving his country in the military, Ryan wanted to serve his community. His plan was to go to college to become a history teacher and hopefully return to Pulaski High School. He became a part of American history though when he battled in Iraq to save others in his company. Ryan’s actions will always teach others about heroism, duty and determination.
