Michael J. Stewart

Michael J. Stewart, 19, is a sailor aboard the U.S.S. Nimitz. He is a 2002 graduate of Colerain High School. He is the son of Rhonda Baird of Colerain and the late Jeff Stewart.

His mother writes:

Michael is very proud to be serving in the United States military. Quoting from one of his e-mails to home: "There is no greater duty or feeling of satisfaction than serving in the military and knowing that your efforts are what keep Americans living the lives they enjoy every day, with the freedoms that are second to none."

Michael lost his father in an auto accident when he was 8 years old. With the help of a loving family and a close walk with the Lord, he has grown up to be a very caring, compassionate and strong individual. I am very proud of my son and the man that he has grown up to be.

May God bless America.

May God bless our president and troops and may God bless my son.
