Jack Harig, a member of  Warriors Journey Home, received the recognition award, "Carroll 'Gene' Stalnaker Got Your 6" at the annual Gala dinner on Saturday 16 September at The Venue in Tallmadge, Ohio. 
The "Carroll 'Gene' Stalnaker Got Your 6" is presented annually to individuals or organizations who have gone "above and beyond" expectations in supporting our veterans homecoming. 
Jack stepped up and stepped in when Ernie Liska. of  Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, was tragically killed in an accident.   
The Warriors Journey Home Circle of Trust meeting at HTLC would be without a leader had Jack not assumed the leadership role.  Jack continued to reach out to veterans through the Valor Court of Summit County, and kept the HTLC Circle engaged.  
Jack has served the greater Akron Community through selfless giving of his time and talents.
He continues to place service before self. 
Thank you Jack, for your military service, your leadership and your ongoing commitment to helping others.
Jack Harig with keynote speaker Major General Dan Hahn, US Army (retired)
