HALL OF PATRIOTS – CLASS OF 2019 INDUCTEE
Chief Warrant Officer Adam Zigelhofer
We are proud to announce Chief Warrant Officer Adam Zigelhofer of Kentucky as our May Hall of Patriots honoree. In 1996, Adam enlisted in the U.S. Army as an infantryman and later served as a Kiowa Warrior helicopter pilot. The first few years of his service included tours in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Kosovo while working with NATO operations overseas. After the attacks of September 11th, he deployed to Iraq twice: once in Operation Iraqi Freedom and again in Operation New Dawn. Throughout these missions, Chief Warrant Officer Zigelhofer exemplified selfless leadership and decisive thinking. Following an unfortunate helicopter accident, he medically retired from the U.S. Army in 2017 after 20 years of incredible service.
Our team had the honor of meeting Adam at the Renewal Coalition Veteran’s Retreat this past year and learned more about his exceptional leadership. While still confined to a wheelchair at the time, his spirits were high and his love of country was evident.
After a successful surgery in September, we are thrilled to hear that Adam is back on his feet and mobile. Adam’s wife, Jessica, and their children, ages 6 and 8, have been a huge support to him during his long recovery. The Zigelhofer family sets a truly patriotic example for Americans everywhere and we could not be more grateful for their sacrifice. Hooah, Chief Warrant Officer Zigelhofer!
