Wednesday night on ABC we met a real American hero.
His name is Israel Del Toro Jr. His rank is Technical Master Sgt. in the United States Air Force. His story is amazing. His speech at the ESPY Awards is inspirational in many ways.
Please first watch his story of how he was injured while fighting for us. Then he explains how he has fought back for his wife, son and himself.
This man is a miracle. Yet, so humble and thankful, like most of our soldiers. Below is his moving speech that amazed so many Wednesday at the ESPYs.
He received the Pat Tillman Award for Service, named for the NFL football player who walked away from millions to represent our country after 9/11. Mr. Tillman paid the ultimate price.
Your kids should know this is what a hero really is, as compared to spoiled professional athletes who get paid millions to play a game.
Master Sgt. Israel Del Toro Jr. has real game. God bless him and all our troops, soldiers, sailors, Airmen and Marines like him.
