I think it’s pretty sad when we know the most ridiculous facts about our favorite athletes, singers and celebrities — but really don’t know much about the people who are giving us the freedom to enjoy such luxuries.

Nominate a Veteran, Enter to Win $50

I also think that it’s time we begin to give the soldiers who are currently fighting or have fought in the past some recognition.

You know that WYRK is proud of this country, and what would it be without the soldiers who have earned our freedom and those who fight to preserve it?

So here is what we are going to do: We would like you to nominate a soldier to become one of our weekly “Hometown Heroes.”  We will choose a new Hometown Hero each Friday. If their name is chosen, we will not only feature them right here on, but we’ll be sure to thank them for their service on the air and dedicate the first song on Noon Tunes to them.

If you nominate a veteran you can enter to win a $50 Jim’s Steakout gift card.

Jim’s Steakout will be offering a Pizza Steak Hero in honor of WNY Heroes. $1 from each Hero sold will be donated to the WNY Heroes organization!

To nominate your Hometown Hero, just use the form below, and then listen to WYRK each Friday to hear their story and stories of other soldiers who have bravely given of themselves to preserve our freedom.

Nominate a Hometown Hero!

Do you know a serviceman or -woman from Western New York? Tell us a little about him/her!
  • Anything else we should know about him/her? Let us know here! (Max. 1,000 characters)
  • On the Friday we honor your nominee, we'll begin Noon Tunes with a song by his/her favorite artist.
