A big Bee salute to our latest 'Hometown Hero' powered by the O'Connor Auto Park.Paul Dionne

IT specialist

Augusta

Paul, my stepdad, has been in the military since I can remember. He deployed in 2003-2005 with the 152 Maintenance Company to Iraq. While deployed with MSG, he showed selfless service and always put his men before himself. Paul also does this in the community if someone needs help, he will stop what he is doing and help out a neighbor a friend or a complete stranger. Since he has been home, he has been the 1SGT of the company he deployed with for 2 years and provides IT service to the Maine Army National Guard. He currently has 23 years in the service and is still going strong.. He is the ultimate hero to everyone and especially to my brother, sister and myself.
