We have been asked by a member of A Hero’s Welcome to surprise a good friend of his and Hero at his retirement party in SNJ.
MSgt Thomas Shine entered the USAF in July, 1987 and recently retired on Oct. 2, 2017 serving 30+ years of flying high and protecting our great country! That’s right…30+ years!
Our Hero served with the 732nd Airlift Squadron, 514th Air Mobility Wing as a Loadmaster on C-17 Globemaster III planes and retired as a Loadmaster on a C-141 Starlifter.
If printed, the list of MSgt. Shine’s accomplishments would run off this website. We will read off the tours of duty and accolaids at the rally point.
(but to name just a few….)
In his 30+ years he participated in:
Operation Desert Shield
Operation Desert Storm
Global War on Terrorism
Operation Enduring Freedom (6x)

Please come out and join us as we say Thank you and Happy Retirement to this American Hero!!

Through the Warriors’ Watch Riders, A Hero’s welcome has been asked by the family of SSgt. Bill Radziewicz to join them as they honor his military service.
Bill Radziewicz turned 83 yrs old and they are throwing him a party at one of his son’s homes in Yardley, PA. He served in the US Army as a Staff Sergeant in Geissen and Schweinfurt, Germany after WWII as occupation forces with the 4th Division, 22nd infantry, Company H. He received the ribbons for Occupation, Good Conduct, and National Defense Service but never got around to obtaining the medals. His sons finally got them for him this year and presented them to him in a shadow box (it took some pursuing as his original records were destroyed in a fire at Fort Knox and revised records showed him in the wrong company).
Please join AHW as we honor this Hero with the presentations he so justly deserves!

With the dedication, the campus will join the Rolling Thunder Inc. POW/MIA Chair of Honor Program, which is intended to bring daily reminders of prisoners of war or missing in action issues. The chair, which is black with the POW/MIA logo on it, is to remain perpetually empty to help people remember that even though the soldiers are not here, there is a space for them.
Hussey Seating donated the chair, and the cost of installation and accompanying signage is being covered by Les Link, a recently retired Delaware Tech employee and Vietnam veteran.
Link initiated the discussion on having a chair installed on campus.
The dedication ceremony will include brief remarks, a three-volley salute by current service members stationed at Dover Air Force Base and the unveiling of the POW/MIA Chair of Honor.
Delaware Tech has asked for us to coordinate a Flagline for this event. Actual dedication starts promptly at 9 am.
