WYRK is proud of this country, and the soldiers who have earned our freedom and those who fight to preserve it. We ask listeners to nominate a soldier to become one of our weekly “Hometown Heroes.” Each Friday a new Hometown Hero is chosen. The selected Hometown Hero is featured right here on WYRK.com, thanked for their service on the air and the first song on Noon Tunes is dedicated to them.
