Glyger G. Beach is a man of many achievements – both in his military service and in his community – who believes in not only serving ones country, but God and family.

Upon completion of training courses, Mr. Beach was deployed to Iraq where he was assigned as Chaplain of the 301st Area Support Group. He had a total of sixty-five personnel working with him to provide area religious support to an entire population of 40,000.

For his military service, Mr. Beach received numerous awards including: the Bronze Star Medal, Meritorious Service Medal, Army Commendation Medal, Army Superior Unit Award, Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal, and many others.

Now listed as one of many soldiers wounded in action, Mr. Beach dedicates his time to helping his community and not only loving his friends and family, but using his vast experience to teach them to follow a holistic and spiritual path in life. When his children were concerned he could be killed in Iraq, he responded by proudly saying, “When I go and if I die, tell anyone and everyone that I willingly gave my life in service to God and the USA.” Mr. Beach is truly a person who loves his family and nation. His pride and faith is deserving of this recognition.
