Join us in saluting Sam Nebesky as our Everyday Hero! Sam was formally recognized at the Miami Dolphins versus Oakland Raiders game on September 14th, as part of our program with the Dolphins. Each home game, we award a military service member with a $1,000 City Furniture gift card as an expression of gratitude for their service—and we also want to share his special story.
Sam is a retired WWII veteran who served as a Staff Sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps. After basic training at Parris Island in South Carolina, he was deployed to the Marshall Islands in the Pacific, as well as Okinawa off the coast of Japan, and finally Yokosuka, a military base in Japan. His primary responsibilities were checking pilots in and out, and organizing the parts needed for the aircraft. And while he humbly views his service as simply his duty to America, we thank him for going above and beyond to protect our country.
