No American ever wants to see a soldier have to be buried. However, if it has to be done, most people wish that it could be done with honor. That’s just what our Hometown Hero does. Today, we honor Senior Airman Michael Bauch as this week’s Hometown Hero.

Michael is described by his sister as “one of the most hardworking men anyone could wish to meet.” Michael was originally stationed in Washington State as an aircraft mechanic. It was an entire country length away from friends and family. Michael heard about an opportunity to get into the base honor guard to help serve families of fallen heroes and veterans. He worked hard and eventually was one of a few selected to serve in the United States National Honor Guard in our nation’s capital. He performed military funerals at Arlington, and though he witnessed heartbreak every day, moments at funerals too solemn to discuss, this only pushed him to work harder for the country he loves.

He received a promotion where he now is in charge of scheduling the elements at the Air Force funerals at Arlington. Michael makes it his mission to ensure our country’s heroes’ last wish of a proper burial is conducted without hesitation, confusion or stress to the hero’s family. These men and women fought to serve our country, and Michael considers it an honor to serve them.

This week, we honor him. Congratulations to Senior Airman Michael Bauch — this week’s Hometown Hero.

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

Once again, thank you to Senior Airman Michael Bauch, our Hometown Hero of the week!
