Letter nominating Travis Livingston:
Hello Jim and Linda, I would like to recommend my very good friend, Travis Livingston, for the 2019 Hero Project. He is an Army Vet, and currently serving in the reserves. He was stationed with and served along side my brother for several years while on active duty. Since leaving the Army on active duty, he has relocated to the local area, and is currently working as a wild land firefighter for the Department of Forestry, and is based in Felda. Travis is a very good guy, a father of three, and a hero in my books, below are the numerous qualifications and different things he has done. I believe Travis deserves to be recognized for his never ending support of his community, the people in the towns he works in, and his willingness to put his life on the line. Travis is very humbled, very respected, and an incredible individual.
