Being a “Proud American” is vowing to protect your country in any way you can, big or small. Few professions demand as much from us as serving in the military, and few others are as thankless as police officers keeping us safe here at home. In this episode, Marine Corps Veteran and Proud American Johnny Joey Jones introduces us to someone you may know as Detective Alvarez on the hit TV show Gotham, but on top of being a successful actor and singer, he’s also a United States Marine, New York State Police Officer and all around Proud American, J.W. Cortes, who has made a difference in this country and his community several times over.
