This week we celebrate the exploits of the exceptional men and women of Region Legal Service Office Japan.
BZ to Lt. Cmdr. Peter Ostrom for quick thinking and response in a crisis. On the Fourth of July, his family was attending a BBQ when the house dog escaped and attacked. Ostrom ran toward the sound of screams to find the 130 pound dog mauling a woman. Ostrom did not hesitate to throw himself at the dog, pulling it off the woman and keeping her from further harm. She sustained significant injury before he arrived, and Ostrom and his family have further aided by helping watch her children while she received continued treatment in the hospital. But for Ostrom’s quick reaction and brave intervention, her injuries would have been far worse.
