NFM SALUTE – October 2018
Hospital Corpsman Third Class Holden Hall
HM3 Hall grew up in small town Cameron, NC. During high school, he found success in the JROTC program, quickly excelling and earning leadership positions. At 16 years old, HM3 Hall joined his local fire department. He fell in love with the job and dedicated the next three years of his free time to helping the community through the fire service. HM3 Hall then joined the Navy at 19 years old and endured one of the hardest programs as a Corpsman. He graduated in the top of his class and spent the next two years in Beaufort, SC assisting Critical Care for Marines. HM3 Hall was recently moved to Jacksonville, NC to complete field medical training with Marines, in the event his skills are needed on deployment.
Now stationed in Jacksonville, HM3 Hall serves the intensive care unit (ICU) at the Naval Medical Center Camp Lejeune. He is still dedicated to his hometown fire department and spends every free weekend he has making the 3.5 hour drive back home to Cameron to serve his community. Recently, he worked four days straight during Hurricane Florence with the fire department, offering support anywhere he could.
HM3 Hall was nominated by his girlfriend, Alysia.
“I am nominating Holden because he truly is a one-of-a-kind person. His passion and love for serving the community truly burns inside him like ‘wildfire’. He shows up for every shift and puts in 120% effort with every moment. So many people love and adore Holden for how well he represents both Vass and Cameron North Carolina. He is a great role model and a true American Hero. He is also the love of my life and I could not have chosen a more selfless person to spend my life with.”
HM3 Hall chose Platoon 22 to receive this month’s donation.
