Townsquare Media and the Jay & Linda Grunin Foundation are teaming up to salute our local heroes with our Warrior of the Week program.

Congratulations to Nicholas A. Matichuk, Our Warrior of the Week for the week of October 23, 2017.

A graduate of Wall High School, Matichuk graduated from basic military training at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, San Antonio, Texas.

Now a U.S. Air Force Airman, he completed an intensive, eight-week program that included training in military discipline and studies, Air Force core values, physical fitness, and basic warfare principles and skills.

Airmen who complete basic training also earn four credits toward an associate in applied science degree through the Community College of the Air Force.

Matichuk is the son of Eileen Matichuk of Wall and Wayne Matichuk of Lakewood. He is also the brother of Lucie Matichuk.

Congratulations to Nicholas A. Matichuk, our Warrior of the Week.

Do you know a deserving past or present military member? Nominate them now. Every Military Monday, we’ll share one of the nominations and honor that person as our Warrior of the Week.
