Green Smoke® Announces Ian Cortinas the Winner of the Bravery in Action Award

Miami, FL (PRWEB) November 26, 2011

Green Smoke®, the leading providers of electronic cigarettes, is proud to announce Military Policeman Ian Cortinas as the winner of the Bravery in Action Award. His wife, Wendy Rennau- Cortinas who publicized his story on Green Smoke®’s Facebook page, will receive the nominee prize of $200 in Green Smoke products.
“This entire initiative was for one reason, and that was to increase the public’s awareness of the courage of our veterans, and tell the stories that don’t get told in the media,” says Ken Berg, Green Smoke® Marketing Coordinator. “Over Veterans Day we really wanted to draw attention to our veterans - the true heroes of our country – and tell the stories of true courage that take place on a daily basis.”
Over the summer, Green Smoke® partnered with the H.E.R.O organization. While working with H.E.R.O Green Smoke® realized that our first responders are among the most underappreciated public figures in America. This is largely due to the fact that their jobs are considered routine. But the truth was that every single soldier, firefighter, and EMT has some incredible stories to tell, stories that are definitely NOT routine.
For example the story of Ian Cortinas, the winner of the Bravery in Action award. Cortinas was stationed in Al Taqqadum, Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom. While on a mission, his convoy came across a wounded Iraqi in desperate need of immediate medical attention. They immediately halted their mission while Cortinas and the convoy’s field doctor worked on the wounded man. For 45 minutes they worked on him until the Medevac helicopter arrived to fly the Iraqi to their base for more intensive care.
Cortinas’s convoy waited until the man was in safe hands before continuing their mission.
Even while at war with insurgents, Ian Cortinas and his convoy hold the value of every human life to be greater than anything else. “The US Marines were there to help the Iraqi people,” says Cortinas.
And for that alone Green Smoke® congratulates them.
