Thank you Amy Maas for submitting Brian Maas to be featured in Secure America Now's veteran recognition program: Home of the Free - Because of the Brave. 

"My brother Brian Maas joined the Marine Corp after high school and served his country proudly in Desert Storm, as one of the youngest marines. He was awarded for rescuing and then providing life-saving field medic interventions, saving the life of his vehicle commander, after their vehicle came under enemy fire. He was born on June 3rd, 1973 and went to be with God on May 24th, 2017 after committing suicide. I want him to be remembered for his service to our country, for being a great father, and for being a positive paraprofessional educator to at-risk students before he passed away. Honoring him is a way to bring awareness to suicide prevention and to all those veterans who struggle with PTSD. I miss him dearly every day and will work to honor his memory always."
