This week’s Community Hero lived most of his life in the Bristol area.
Jack Ramsey knew from a very young age that he wanted to be a soldier and serve our country. He ended up doing both.. exceedingly well.
 
Jack attended Tennessee High School, but he left as soon as he turned 18… hoping to serve with the Army in Vietnam.
 
Though he didn’t get to go, he did serve in operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. In fact, his time in the military yielded more than a dozen medals and ribbons for exemplary conduct and bravery.
 
Jack Ramsey retired from the service at age 38… after 20 years with the 101st Airborne Division in Fort Campbell, Kentucky.
 
He returned to Bristol Tennessee to enjoy retirement, but passed away too soon.. just four years ago.. at the age of 61.
 
Thank you for your service, Jack Ramsey, this week’s Community Hero.
