Ray Burg from Jockey, with Jason Castleberry


Texas Legionnaire receives 4th annual Jockey Texas Hero Award

Royse City, TX

In 2016, Jockey Underwear started a campaign called "SHOWEM WHAT'S UNDERNEATH". The campaign was meant to show people that there are everyday heroes out there making a difference in the lives of others. Recently Jason Castleberry, the adjutant of Royse City Post 100, was recognized for his work with The American Legion. He was instrumental in creating the post and training the officers. He also helped raise money for a local veteran who was need of a handicapped van, and a local family who needed help paying medical bills after their baby was born prematurely.
"This award was about all the hard work our members have done to assist our veterans and our community," Jason said. "None of our accomplishments are because of one person; we have all done our part to make this post one of the best in the state"
For being selected as the Jockey Texas True Hero Award winner, Jason received 8 tickets to the Texas Longhorn vs TCU basketball game, which he took himself and his sister's family to. He also received a $250 gift card to Jockey, and his sister and wife received $125 jockey gift cards for nominating him.
Jason joined the Army in 1996 as an Infantryman and later reclassified to UAV operator. He would get out of the military in 2005. He would join the Legion in 2015 and since then has become the district vice commander, department C&Y chairman, and has worked on various task force assignments for the department.
