This Week’s Hometown Hero comes to us originally from the Town of Tonawanda. He is 21-year-old Kyle Lorenz, and he is an Army Specialist currently deployed in Afghanistan.

He’s described as the oldest of four boys, loves fishing, jetskiing, snowboarding and the beach. In fact, he loves just about anything outdoors. He’s very high energy, fun loving and on the go. His girlfriend Jen, dog Bear and his family miss him. Kyle was deployed on May 6 to Fob Shank, 'til February 2014, and his whole family cannot wait until he gets back.

We appreciate everything all our service men and women do for us and pray they all return safely.

If you would like to nominate someone who is currently serving our country or has served in the past, click the button below. We will choose a new Hometown Hero each Friday. 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.
