Remembering Navy Veteran Petty Officer 3rd Class Jared Lee Metro

May 30, 2021 | News

Today, Whirlwind Veterans and Warrior Retreat, Inc had the honor to attend the memorial service for Navy Veteran Petty Officer 3rd Class Jared Lee Metro. Jared was involved in a fatal motorcycle accident on September 11, 2020.

A huge thank you to the Metro family for their generous donation, which will assist in continuing to develop the Retreat.

Petty Officer Metro was an avid outdoorsman, and to honor his memory, Whirlwind Veterans and Warrior Retreat would like to dedicate the newly constructed fishing pond in his name once complete.

Today and everyday please remember our veterans both past and present.
