Hometown: Ney, Ohio

Name/Alias: John Agway

MOS: 02M

Rank: SP5

Branch of Service: Army

Time Served: 1980 - 1983

Why I joined the Military: I grew up in a small town with limited job opportunities, so I joined the Army after high school to start a career as a musician.

Why I joined Handmade By Heroes: I started with Handmade By Heroes through a Goodwill Jobs Rehabilitation program. I decided to stay because I enjoyed working with fellow veterans. After a car accident that caused traumatic brain injury and short term memory loss, I find working here reduces the stress in my life.

Message to customers…Thank you for your interest in our products and for supporting veterans with gainful employment.  

My favorite sports team and why…not much of a sports fan.
