Jordan Brown is a 13 year old WWII buff who embarked upon a campaign to ensure that the WWII vets who served on D-Day are memorialized. In May 2010, he learned of an effort to honor Jordan’s hero, Major Dick Winters, and all the men that served on D-Day by having a statue built in St. Marie Du-Mont, Normandy, France. Jordan knew he wanted to help in funding this monument so he created olive green "Hang Tough" wristbands which he distributed for minimum donations of $1. In order to bring greater awareness to his efforts, Jordan has delivered speeches to area civic organizations, marched in parades, manned stands at fairs, and has been interviewed by the local and national media. As word spread of his efforts, a small team of 'adult cheerleaders' formed to help him reach his goal. To date, over $ 97,000 has been raised. Jordan future plans include acting and filmmaking. He has acted in several local movies and enjoys making stop-action films using Legos.
