On October 4, Billy deployed to Afghanistan, with 60 of his comrades, for a 12-month tour.
He came to our attention through his mother-in-law, Leisa Ragona. In her email to us, she writes, “I am very proud of him, and love him like he’s my own child.” We’re proud of him, too, Leisa, and it’s an honor to recognize him here.
If you know Billy, or if you don’t, show him and his family some support in the comments on this page. We’ll try to make sure the he gets your messages!
