Williams-Grand Canyon News

Williams resident and veteran Michael Rioux stands with Zandy's Acres' Seymour Zandell at the Williams VFW Post. In 1979, Rioux joined the 9th Infantry Division stationed at Fort Lewis. From 1982-1987 he served with the National Guard and rose to the rank of E-6 Staff Sgt. After 9-11, Rioux re-enlisted with the Vermont National Guard and was assigned to a Mountain Infantry Unit that deployed to Afghanistan in December 2010. Rioux's unit earned the Valorous Unit Award for outstanding courage. Rioux volunteers with the Wounded Warrior Project and is a service officer with the Williams VFW post helping veterans navigate their claims through the Veterans Administration. Recently Rioux contacted Zandell after seeing Zandell's plans for a veterans housing project in New Jersey. Zandell recently visited with Rioux and other members of the VFW post to discuss working on something similar in the Williams area.
