Region 8 Hero

Spec. Jillian Monk Rhoads
U.S. Army

Specialist Jillian Rhoads is with the 101st Airborne based in Fort Campbell, Ky., serving in Operation Iraqi Freedom. She is a crew chief for the division's Blackhawk helicopters.

Her husband, Michael, is also a member of the 101st. They were married in Knobel on Christmas Eve 2001.

They love their two pets Tank (chocolate lab) and Lucy (cocker spaniel). They both love to fish on our pond, and hunt.

"My message to both of them is that I miss them very much and pray for the safety everyday. As I do for all the troops, and their families."
