This week we salute Commander Jon Rystrom.
Originally from Stromsburg Nebraska, Jon paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms.
He was stationed in Norfolk, VA as a member of the U.S. Navy when he was killed in a plane crash off the coast of Italy on March 26th 1993.
This nomination comes to us from Jon's niece Sara Noble. She says that the entire family misses him every day and it's hard to believe that it has been 20 years since his passing. Sara sends love from the entire family.
Jon, thank you for the sacrifice you made for our country.
