United States Army
Husband and father of two, SFC John Kloiber of Crestview, Fla., has served in the U.S. Army for nearly two decades. Since 2001 he has been deployed nine times to Afghanistan; earlier deployments took him to Russia, Egypt, Korea and elsewhere. He has been a proud member of the 7th Special Forces for several years and has earned many commendations, including a Bronze Star. At home, John volunteers at the Special Olympics and for his sons' baseball teams and participates in charity road races. Ever humble, John doesn't boast about his accomplishments, because he believes that they are for his country and his family.
