Patriotic Support
Onaway, Michigan

ONAWAY - The owner of Moran Iron Works was recognized for his support of an employee and his family while he's deployed overseas.

Tom Moran received the Department of Defense Patriot Award Friday for exceeding requirements to support Staff Sgt. Matthew Cherrette and his family while he's serving in Afghanistan, Peter Pallas, Michigan Employee Support of the Guard and Reserve Ombudsman director, said. Aside from his company's assistance by extending benefits while Cherrette is overseas, Moran has been in contact with his family and helped in numerous other ways.

Cherrette's wife, Heather, lives in Rogers City with their two children, Norah and Mason. His brother, Chad, also works for Moran Iron Works.

Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
Jesus Christ and an American Soldier - One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.
