Staff Sergeant argent-- Jonathan Cunha—Military veteran and Air National Guard member
Lexington has always taken great pride in its veterans. Lexington native Jonathan is a prime example of someone who has given of himself to protect our country interests. Jonathan has been in the military for 11 years, the past seven as a member of the Air National Guard, preceded by four years of Air Force active duty. His tours of duty have taken him to both South Korea and Afghanistan. Like most veterans, he makes little fuss about the danger and sacrifice involved with military service but rather shoulders the responsibility with quiet humility and grace. We photographed Jonathan at Tower Park.
