A major salute and congratulations to our CEO, Jake Newbold for his induction into the Ohio Military Hall of Fame. Twenty-seven inductees will mark 24 years for the Ohio Military Hall of Fame for Valor as the the hall of fame is set hold its 24th annual induction, May 5, at the Ohio Statehouse Atrium in Columbus.
Among the inductees to be recognized for exceptional valor and decorated heroics during duty is Columbiana County’s Jacob Newbold.
Newbold, who is from Salineville and currently resides in Texas, is a United States Navy Seal, who earned the Bronze Star Medal with “V” for his heroics while as Senior Enlisted Advisor for District Stability Platform Muhammed Agha, Special Operations Task Force-Afghanistan during Operation Enduring Freedom on June 8, 2014. The Bronze Star Medal with the “V” device to denote heroism is the fourth highest military decoration for valor.
According to his citation provided by Ted Mosure, President of the Ohio Military Hall of Fame Board of Directors, Newbold distinguished himself through heroic action and decisive leadership during a raid into Burg Village. He led his element to secure a command and control position on an exposed ridgeline to effectively command the combined operation. He repeatedly dismounted from his armored vehicle under heavy enemy fire in order to communicate critical information with the Afghan Ground Force Commander. In order to allow a partner force element pinned by insurgent machine-gun fire to maneuver, he led an element within 20 meters of an enemy machine-gun nest. As his vehicle’s heavy weapon jammed, he dismounted the vehicle and engaged an insurgent with a hand grenade as the insurgent prepared to fire a rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) at the vehicle. Newbold’s grenade badly wounded the insurgent and caused the RPG to narrowly miss his vehicle.
Jake, we are honored to have you as our CEO and we thank you for your contribution to our country.
