Honoring Army Sgt Bryan Dilberian and Gold Star Family of Army LT Col Jaime Leonard.

U.S. Army SGT Brian Dilberian was on patrol with a friend in the Arghanbab River Valley, west of Kandahar Afghanistan, when an improvised explosive device exploded. His friend was killed instantly, Dilberian lost both legs and one of his arms. Despite the tradgedy, Brian has an amazingly positive attitude and is a true life hero and inspiration! It was an honor to host him at the Jets game. The Jets owner, woody Johnson even teamed up with the Tunnels to Towers Foundation & built Brian a smart home!

Army Major Jaimie Elizabeth Leonard died on June 8, 2013 in Afghanistan while serving on her second deployment. From a young age, she dreamed of serving in the military and achieved this ambition with over 16 years of honorable service in the US Army. A brilliant and committed officer, Jaimie was respected and beloved by those with whom she served. She was an inspiration to all. It was an honor to host surviving family members at the Jets game in Maj. Leonard’s honor.
