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 Ralph McFadden, our Warrior of the Week for the week of August 13th, 2018.

U.S. Air Force Reserve Airman 1st Class Ralph McFadden graduated from basic military training at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland in San Antonio, Texas.

The airman 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.

McFadden is the son of Shelia McFadden of Barnegat, and grandson of Linda Gill of Freehold.

He is a 2010 graduate of Freehold Township High School.

Congratulations to Ralph McFadden, 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.
