Thanks for Giving Heroes (Names E-H)
Heroism is around us every day and it deserves to be celebrated! We're saying "thank you" to men and women who have done extraordinary things -- see why these folks are an inspiration to us all!
When Hurricane Sandy hit last year, MTA veterans Johnny and Joe decided to pick up an extra shift, thinking they would only have to deal with rain and wind-related issues. What they encountered, though, was much worse. In one particular incident, Johnny and Joe paddled an inflatable police raft against a raging current to rescue three of their MTA "brothers" from the roof of a van, even though Johnny couldn't swim and had never been on a boat. Together, Johnny and Joe rescued almost 30 people during the storm.
