Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – When he was nominated for the GEICO Military Service Award, Sgt. 1st Class Julio Mella, 21st Brigade Engineer Battalion, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division, was honored but did not think much about it.

“There were many, many people being nominated with me,” Mella said. “I wasn’t being pessimistic, just realistic.”

The GEICO Military Service Awards Program “spotlights the valuable and lasting contributions enlisted members of the armed forces make in three specific areas of endeavor,” according to the GEICO website.

Service members can be nominated for service in drug and alcohol abuse prevention, fire safety and fire prevention or traffic safety and accident prevention. Each year, one member from each branch of the service is selected to receive the award.

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – No more than five-feet tall, dressed in slacks and a blouse, Frances Cutler Hahn, a Holocaust survivor, confidently approached the podium at the center of the Fort Campbell High School gym April 24th, 2017, to share her life story.

Cutler Hahn was a hidden Jewish child during World War II. In 1936 her parents Cyla and Shlomo immigrated to France from Poland in search of a better life. Two years later Frances was born in Paris. When she was 2-years-old, the Nazis invaded Paris.

One year later, Frances’ parents put her in a children’s home for protection. When that became unsafe she was moved to live with a Catholic Family on a farm. In 1942, her mother died in the Auschwitz concentration camp. Her father died from combat wounds four years later.

Fort Campbell High School students listen as Frances Cutler Hahn, a former hidden Jewish child, shares her Holocaust survival story during an assembly April 24, 2017, at FCHS.
