Stories from the Intrepid – What Prince Harry, an iconic WWII aircraft carrier, and three brave Americans can teach us

The Intrepid Valor Award - Honorees included Air Force Veteran / Master Sgt (Ret) Kyle Hines, Surviving Spouse of Lt Col Matt Block, Barbara Block, Army Special Forces Veteran Julian Kitching, US Navy Servicemember Wayne “Ty” Garvin, and Marine / Chief Warrant Officer Stephen Rudinksi.

"Service isn't loud.  Service is what happens in the quiet and when people aren't looking. It's about how we take care of each other every single day. It's about the camaraderie we share, the laughs, the comfort, the pain, the challenge and yes, the banter. Throughout my time in the military and after, I recognized and understood that for many who have served, or are still serving, it might not feel right to stand out amongst the team and be recognized. But you deserve to be recognized."
