NOTE: A photo of Jack Singer could not be found. The Pink Flamingo is using one, instead of Marine Sgt. Eddie Ryan who is the recipient of Jack Singer’s incredible decency.
Wednesday Hero has been mainly about honoring the Men & Women of the United States military and bringing to light what they do for us, but it’s also honored those who’ve done something to help those same Men & Women.
This week I want to introduce Jack Singer of Warwick, N.Y.
You see, Jack recently celebrated his 10th birthday, and he did something very cool for a very good cause.
He broke the world record for wearing the most pairs of underwear.
215 in fact.
But why did he do this?
To help raise money for Sgt. Eddie Ryan, a marine who was injured in Iraq five years ago.
Now, think back to when you were 10 years old.
How many of us could say that they would have forwent birthday presents to raise money for a good cause? I don’t think I would have.
Jack Singer is, hands down, one of the coolest kids on the planet and I’m proud to honor him.
These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.
We Should Not Only Mourn These Men And Women Who Died, We Should Also Thank God That Such People Lived
