Fort McCoy employee, Army Reserve Soldier saves family from house fire
Tyler Griffith, a heavy mobile equipment repair leader with the 88th Readiness Division’s Equipment Concentration Site-67 at Fort McCoy, Wis., is shown working at his shop at Fort McCoy on May 31, 2024. Griffith was being hailed as a hero after his quick actions saved a family from a potentially tragic house fire on the morning of May 24, 2024. Griffith, a former U.S. Marine with extensive military training who currently serves in the Army Reserve as a staff sergeant, was on his morning commute May 24 when he noticed a manufactured home ablaze near the Monroe County highway intersection of Q and B outside of Cataract, Wis. Without hesitation, Griffith pulled into the driveway, rushed to the door, and woke the occupants, ensuring their safety. (U.S. Army Photo by Christopher Jones/Fort McCoy Public Affairs Office)
