Last week, we brought some attention to a Facebook event for Howell Township Marine, Joe Revier who turned 21 on Friday. The idea was to raise a glass wherever you are and upload the picture to the event wall on Facebook so Joe could see it when he got to a computer, since he's currently in Afghanistan serving our country.

The outpouring of love and support for Joe spread throughout the country. By the middle of the day Saturday, not only were friends and family members participating, but kind strangers. A lot of participants were from New Jersey, but we had people contribute from everywhere around America.

On behalf of New Jersey 101.5, as well as the Revier family, I want to thank those who participated in a nationwide 21st birthday celebration! Below are the pictures that were uploaded to honor a hometown hero.
