Name/Alias: Mike Ung / “The Sarge”
MOS: 11B Infantry
Unit: 1-22 IN 4th ID & 2-87 IN 10th MTN DIV

Time Served: 9 years
Why I joined the Military: For a sense of life accomplishment and to fulfill a family tradition. I am fourth generation Army in my family; my oldest daughter being fifth generation.
Why I joined Handmade By Heroes: Honestly I found the job by accident, having lived next door to the owner and at the time, Operations were being run in the house next door to me. It is a good reason to keep me busy and not cooped up in the house all day.
Message to customers…Just because you are retired or injured doesn’t mean you’re dead. Live life to the fullest and accomplish as many things as you can so that you leave your legacy to be carried on after you leave.
My favorite sports team and why…The Philadelphia Eagles because I lived in NJ for a while and we don’t have a real team!
