The WWII Vet Who Tossed The Coin For The Super Bowl Has An Amazing Story
Marine veteran and Medal of Honor recipient Woody Williams appeared in millions of Americans’ homes on Sunday after he tossed the coin at the Super Bowl — and his story is absolutely amazing.

Hershel Woody Williams Medal of Honor Foundation to Dedicate Memorial Monument to Gold Star Families
Gold Star Families Memorial Monument to be established at Hershel Woody Williams Armed Forces Reserve Center- Fairmont, WV.
FAIRMONT, W.Va. - Medal of Honor recipient Hershel "Woody" Williams and the Hershel Woody Williams Medal of Honor Foundation in collaboration
with United Parcel Service (UPS) will dedicate the Gold Star Families Memorial Monument- Fairmont, WV at the Hershel Woody Williams
Armed Forces Reserve Center. The Gold Star Families from West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Ohio participated in a ceremony on December 5, 2016
and unveil the Gold Star Families Memorial Monument (GSFMM). The GSFMM is a tribute to families who have lost a loved one in the military service
of our country.
This GSFMM pays tribute to those Gold Star Families left behind, the families who have lost a loved one in the military. West Virginians have always answered the call for help-whether here at home or halfway around the world. The GSFMM reminds us of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice and to always honor their families-the mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles, sisters,
brothers and all relatives.
"West Virginia is known to have the most patriots per capita serving America, and lost more of her loved ones per capita in the Armed Forces than any other state," said Medal of Honor recipient Hershel "Woody" Williams. "The dedication of the Gold Star Families Memorial Monument to those who gave one or more of their loved ones is long overdue, and it says to all those who suffered that loss, We have not forgotten. We will remember."
Established in 2012, Hershel Woody Williams Medal of Honor Foundation is a charitable 501(c)(3), not-for-profit organization that pursues specific endeavors and goals through the vision of Medal of Honor Recipient Hershel "Woody" Williams. The Foundation encourages, with the assistance of the American public and community leaders, establishing permanent Gold Star Family Memorial Monuments in their communities throughout our country. Its purpose is to honor Gold Star Families who have sacrificed a loved one in the service of their country.
