This week’s Hometown Hero is originally from Depew.  It’s U.S. Army EOD Tech Brian Foote!

Brian’s nomination said this:

Brian is someone I've known for 10 years and is one of the bravest people I know. While serving overseas in Afghanistan he was shot in the shoulder by a sniper who just barely missed his heart. After a long and painful recovery at a base in Alaska, Brian remained in the army and remained an EOD tech. Many people would not be able to do what he does and I'm proud to call him a friend.

We are proud to call him this week’s Hometown Hero! Thanks again to EOD Tech Brian Foote for all that he does to keep our country safe.

If their name is chosen, we will not only feature them 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.

Once again, thank you to EOD Tech Brian Foote, our Hometown Hero of the week!
