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.

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 WYRK.com, but we'll be sure to thank them for their service on the air.


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.
