Brewers Community Achievers 2013 Monthly Winners

Wetzel

April Community Achiever: Gary Wetzel

This month's honoree is Gary Wetzel. While in the U.S. Army, Gary was awarded the Medal of Honor in 1968. He worked for the Assault Helicopter Company where he distinguished himself by conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life, above and beyond the call of duty. Wetzel was going to give aid to his aircraft commander when he was blown into a rice paddy and critically wounded by 2 enemy rockets that exploded inches from his location. Although bleeding profusely, Wetzel assisted his crew chief even though he lost consciousness; he persisted in his efforts to drag himself to the aid of his fellow crewman. His gallant actions were in keeping with the highest traditions of the U.S. Army and reflect great credit upon himself and the Armed Forces of his country. Upon return to Wisconsin, Gary has founded numerous veterans' organizations to assist military veterans and their families, such as the Vietnam Veterans WI Chapter 1. He also assists veterans in need and an advocate for disabled veterans. During Gary's spare time, he speaks to school children to educate them on the Vietnam War. Gary also serves on the Advisory Board for Fischer House Wisconsin. Thank you Gary for serving our country and for being an advocate for veterans and their families.

Buttery

May Community Achiever: Daniel Buttery

This month's honoree is Daniel Buttery. In 2003, Dan was the commander of a combat engineer company, which successfully conducted 300 missions in Iraq from May 2003 to April 2004. His company covered all corners from Mosul to Baghdad to Basra. He brought home all 124 soldiers from the deployment and was awarded the Bronze Star. Injuries sustained in the line of duty while in Iraq eventually ended his military services. Since that time, it has been Dan's personal mission to continue to support those in the military and veterans, and their families. Dan serves as the President of the Board of Directors for Fischer House Wisconsin, Inc. Fischer House is a "home away from home" from military and veteran family members, who can stay in the house for free while remaining bed side for their loved ones medical treatment and recovery. While running his own business, Dan volunteers all of his spare time to his role within Fischer House and bringing the first one to Wisconsin. This works will become a reality when ground breaks on the Milwaukee VA grounds this fall 2013. Thanks Daniel for serving our country and for being a passionate defender and advocate for veterans and their families.

Knopf

June Community Achiever: Barbara Knopf

For the past 8 years ago, Barbara has run Morgan Horse Rescue, a non-profit organization where she rescued horses from Equine Outreach Inc. Since the rescue of the abused and neglected horses, she's been providing veterans and their families horse therapy at no charge. Barbara being a disabled veteran from the Beirut era understands how hard it is to take off the uniform and regain your place back with your family and the community. That's why she devoted her time and money with horse therapy in helping veterans regain inner peace, self-awareness and confidence. Horse therapy is a proven method in helping veterans with PTSD and with physical problems after they return from deployment. Barbara has an accreditation with Professional Association of Therapy Horsemen and Women Association and has worked with many wounded warriors, American Legion and VFW's across Wisconsin. With the help of the horses and Barbara's support, a number of the veterans using her program are requiring fewer drugs, suffer from less depression and are happier after working with her and these great horses.

Weston

July Community Achiever: Killian Weston

Killian is a 7 year old first grader at Hartland North Elementary School. After seeing an ad for a national hunger association, Killian became very sad and discussed with his mother what the advertisement meant. After the discussion, he learned that everyone in the world doesn't have enough money to buy food and that there were plenty of people in our community that could use help. He contacted the local food pantry but was told that he was too young to volunteer so he asked what could he do to help and he was told that they were always looking for help with donations. Killian decided the best thing he could do was start a food drive. The next day, he went to his teacher and principal to discuss doing a school-wide food drive to support the Hartland Food Pantry. Killian made posters to bring awareness about the drive and with the assistance of the school 1000 food items were raised. Killian and his entire class delivered the donations to the pantry. Now Killian has made this an annual event.
