This week’s Hometown Hero comes to us originally from Medina. It’s Army Specialist Dan Page!

Dan was deployed to Afghanistan in June and will be gone until next year. He has been in the Army Reserves for three and a half years now in a heavy equipment operating unit. He loves being in the military and plans to reenlist once his contract is up.

He is a huge Buffalo Bills, Sabres and Bandits fan and is so upset he is missing them while overseas. His family is hoping to be able to get him to Sabres and Bandits games once he gets home next year. Dan plays lacrosse and football on local teams back home.

His husky, Thor, and his wife miss him very much!! Their 2-year wedding anniversary was on Tuesday, and the first song today goes out to them. It’s their wedding song, "My Best Friend" by Tim McGraw.

Thank you Specialist Dan Page! You’re this week’s Hometown Hero!

If their name is chosen, we will not only feature them right here on WYRK.com, but we'll be sure to thank them for their service on the air and dedicate the first song on Noon Tunes to them.
