Over his career he was the recipient of numerous awards for volunteerism and received a Navy Commendation Medal for his courage on 9/11 at the Pentagon and days after.
He is known as the “Saluting Marine” for a salute he has held in Washington D.C. at the annual POW/MIA motorcycle demonstration run, now to be known as “Rolling to Remember” thanks to the AMVETS. His Salute lasts over 4 hours and has been taken as a welcome home to Vietnam and Korean War Veterans.
