This week's Hometown Hero is originally from Alden.  It's 21-year-old Marine Corps Lance Corporal Jordan Koziarski.

Jordan graduated from Alden High School in 2010 and immediately joined the Marines. He graduated from boot camp the following September and since then has toured in Afghanistan and Kuwait. He is currently training to go on another tour to Afghanistan.

Jordan is nothing short of a country boy: He loves to hunt and fish and works on the farm when he's home. He loves to spend time with family and friends. His four-year contract is up next spring, and he is planning to go to college when he is back home.

We wish Jordan the best of luck and hope he finds his way back home soon. Thanks to him for his service and for being this week's Hometown Hero!

We will honor a new Hometown Hero each week, and if their name is picked, not only do we mention them on the air but we also dedicate the first song on Noon Tunes to them.

Thank you once again to Jordan Koziarski, this week’s Hometown Hero!
