US Airman’s Son in UK Awarded Certificate for Good Deed

Ethan Grigg offered free mowing services to the spouses of US Airmen deployed in the UK

Published on October 17, 2019

The son of a US Airman based at RAF Lakenheath has been awarded a certificate recognizing his support for families across the Liberty Wing.

Ethan Grigg, son of US Air Force Master Sgt Daniel Grigg, set up a free lawn mowing service for spouses of Airmen deployed at the base. Ethan said that "I’m always glad to help others and my mom and dad helped me with the flyers". Col John Stratton, 48th Fighter Wing vice commander, presented Ethan with a certificate of appreciation on October 15, 2019, at RAF Lakenheath. Col Stratton explained that "Colonel Marshall and I, on behalf of the Liberty Wing, wanted to thank Ethan for his kindness and generosity in offering free lawn care service for the spouses of deployed members ... Every time I get a chance to talk with our military members around the base, I ask them to keep working hard, do the job they’ve been trained to do, and be a positive influence on the people they work with and in their community. Ethan, as a 12-year-old, is embodying that message and making things a little easier and just a little nicer for our Liberty Wing families with his simple act of kindness. We appreciate it and we wanted to bring attention to it across the base."

Congratulations to Ethan on embodying a strong message to all of us in the UK.
