This week’s Hometown Hero is originally from Kenmore. It’s U.S. Army Sergeant Nathen Stock!

Nathen joined the Army and left two days after graduating from Kenmore West High School. He trained at Fort Knox Armor training center to become a 19k Tanker like his dad and graduated top soldier. He was awarded the General George S. Patton award and was the honor grad. After being stationed at Ft. Stewart in Georgia, his unit was sent to Afghanistan for a year tour. Less than three years after he returned, he was promoted to sergeant.

Just this past year his unit went to gunnery, and he became a gunner on the most advanced tank in the world -- the M1A2sepv. As a gunner, he shot top tank in his company with a score of 965.

His father, also a proud veteran with the U.S. Army, was the person who nominated him.  Thank you goes out to both Nathen and his dad, and we are proud to call him this week’s Hometown Hero! Thanks again to U.S. Army Sergeant Nathen Stock for all that he does to keep our country safe.

Once again, thank you to U.S. Army Sergeant Nathen Stock, our Hometown Hero of the week!
