Michael Maroney United States Air Force Then 3-year-old Lashay Brown had been stuck for three days without food or water before Michael pulled her and family members up to safety.. "When I got her mom up, her mom was scared. Lashay rubs her mom's back and says it's ok mom, we're safe now. And she wasn't just talking to her mom she was talking to me." - Master Sgt. Michael Maroney United States Air Force Michael has a deep military background and the US Air Force Reserve Master Sgt. Has also battled PTSD. One moment with Lashay, Michael says changed his life. And somebody just happened to take a photo of it. "And she wraps me up in this hug and all my pain went away. My heart didn't hurt. My head didn't hurt. Nothing hurt and it felt good." - Master Sgt. Michael Maroney United States Air Force And that good feeling stuck "I wanted to know how it turned out so I started looking for them and found nothing." - Master Sgt.

He's more like a family member than a friend" - Lashay Brown Waveland Resident At the ball, Michael gave a speech and received a special honor...but his greatest award...the little girl's hug and friendship that blossomed out of devastation.
