(Nominated by Nathan McNutt)
Mount Rushmore National Memorial
August 9, 2011

Justin lost his leg in Afghanistan; however, he has not let that stop him. After being medically retired from the Army, Justin continued to selflessly serve others. Justin was the first amputee to complete the South Dakota Law Enforcement academy. He is currently serving his fellow veterans as a Police officer at Fort Meade, Veterans Hospital (VA). Justin has never quit serving others!
