BALTIMORE — WMAR-2 News is committed to improving the lives of Veterans in Maryland by giving light to their stories, struggles and triumphs. Every week a local veteran will be featured in our Veteran Spotlight contest.

This week's honoree is Gregory Ford of Baltimore. He served the United States Army for 24 years in field artillery.

Major Ford worked his way up from an enlisted soldier, became a drill sergeant and went on to become an officer.

He has deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan and has been stationed in nearly a dozen different places across the world.

Major Ford is committed to helping the community through the Forever Baltimore! Facebook page that he created with his wife, Janell.

They are proud parents of daughters, Taitana and Tiana.

Thank you Major Ford for your service and dedication to our country.
