It was great to connect with the 2014 National Military Child of the Year Michael-Logan Jordan, who presented me with two of what he calls “challenge coins.”

The first is from is his 2014 Military Child of The Year medal and the other is his Logan’s Heroes Foundation which raises money for wounded warriors. What an honor it is to receive these mementos from a brave warrior himself — who is in the July issue of Money Magazine.

July is also Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month and Michael-Logan is one of 1,500 in the state challenged with this disease. Despite living with pain daily, the 15-year-old Kalaheo High student still managed to march with me at the Kailua 4th of July parade. Congrats to his parents, Chris and Rebecca, and Michael-Logan’s siblings, Jaxson and Sophia for their bright spirits and patriotism.
