Night to Honor Our Heroes presented by Wells Fargo
Staff Sgt. Salvatore A. Giunta, US Army
With over 1,100 guests comprised of active military representing all ranks and branches, wounded veterans, and corporate partners, the ninth annual Night to Honor Our Heroes presented by Wells Fargo filled the room to capacity.

During the program, Wells Fargo and Military Warriors Support Foundation presented a mortgage-free home to Cody Miller, and a payment-free vehicle to Jeremiah Busby, both Army veterans.

The highlight of the evening was Medal of Honor recipient, Staff Sgt. Salvatore A. Giunta, US Army, and top-ranked PGA TOUR professional and fan favorite, Matt Kuchar.

Staff Sgt. Giunta spoke about his service in his second deployment when his platoon was ambushed in the rugged Korengal Valley of eastern Afghanistan. As a result of his extraordinary gallantry, unrivalled courage and selfless leadership that day, Staff Sgt. Giunta was awarded the Medal of Honor by President Barak Obama.

Matt Kuchar, seven-time PGA TOUR winner, concluded with a conversation with the evening’s host, Bill Macatee, lead anchor for CBS Sports; sharing stories of his experience as a member of the victorious 2016 U.S. Ryder Cup team and representing his country in the 2016 Rio Games, where Kuchar secured the Bronze Medal in golf’s return to the Olympics.

Following the moving and uplifting event, guests left with a renewed sense of patriotism and gratitude for those who serve in the U.S. Armed Forces.
