This week's Hometown Hero is Marine Corps Sergeant Jeff Gramlich.  He's originally from Tonawanda and he spent 4 years in the Marines.  This is a guy who was on the front lines in Afghanistan and Iraq.

He was nominated by his mom.  This is what she wrote:

Marine Corps Sergeant Jeff Gramlich served from 2003 to 2007 during the heart of the war. He was in the infantry so he was on the front lines. He spent 7 months in Afghanistan in 2004 and 7 months in Iraq in 2005. He was always on the go and I'm so proud of him and all that he's accomplished. I know he saw some pretty intense action over there and we're thankful to have him back here healthy and safe! One of my proudest moments was watching him leave on the bus to Iraq with his company. I thought to myself wow those men are brave. What am I worried about? God Bless our troops and God Bless the USA!

 

We want to thank Sergeant Jeff Gramlich for his service!  You're right.  He was incredibly brave and we cannot say thank you enough.

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.
