Sgt. Justin Hansen USMC- Kiss Country Salutes
This week we salute a service member who made the ultimate sacrifice, Sgt. Justin Hansen of the United States Marine Corps. Justin’s story comes to us from his cousin, Ashley. Take a few moments to read a little bit about Justin and show your support.
Every week Kiss Country is making a special point to thank all those incredible men and women who have served our great country! We appreciate the sacrifices made by service personnel and their families. Submit your story.
This week’s submission comes from Ashley Hays:
My cousin, Sgt. Justin Hansen, gave his life for our freedom on July 24th, 2012. He was a dedicated member of the United States Marine Corps. He was 26 years old and was from Kingsley Michigan. I will never forget the town’s dedication to their hometown hero. I was there for the funeral and over 1,400 people attended the service and burial. He was a legend in his town and any soldier he ever served with would tell you that he was the best there ever was, including his general. I’ll never be able to forget the fact that he will never be given the chance to get married or start a family. But I will certainly NEVER forget his ultimate sacrifice for me, his country, and our freedom.
Ashley, we want you to know that we will NEVER forget Justin’s sacrifice either. Thank you for sharing his story with us.
