It was five years ago that we started to recognize the people who fight for our freedom every day with our Hometown Hero segment.  Today, we thank the very first nominee again.

Our very first nominee to be our Hometown hero was at the time a 26-year-old Corporal in the United States Marine Corps. Our original Hometown Hero was Lancaster native Adam Wiepert.

If you'd like to see his original nomination, click here.

We would like to once again say thank you for your service to our country, Adam.  We want you to know that we appreciate everything that you have done to ensure our freedom!

Moving forward, we would like for you to nominate someone who is currently serving our country or has served in the past.  Click the button below and tell us why you think they're a hero and help us to say thank you to them.. We will choose a new Hometown Hero each Friday. If their name is chosen, we will be sure to thank them for their service on the air and here at WYRK.com.
