The Final Hometown Hero: Corporal Stephen C. Weaver, U.S. Marine Corp

Weaver served in Vietnam in 1965 and 1966. During an ambush he was wounded and subsequently lost his right arm as well as partial hearing in his right ear.

 

He received two Purple Hearts for his sacrifice. After the incident and rehab, Weaver was forced to learn to do everything left handed. As his son tells it, he could “eventually do anything a two-handed person could do.” He never used his disability as a crutch and generally doesn’t like to receive notoriety or recognition or thanks for his sacrifice.

Weaver has been a Ravens season ticket holder since the new stadium opened in 1998. He and his son also went to games at Memorial Stadium where their love for the Ravens was born. They come to every game and tailgate and cheer hard for the Ravens!

So for this week’s Baltimore Ravens Hometown Hero presented by Dietz & Watson, let’s hear it for Stephen Weaver, U.S. Marine Corp!
