All of us at 101.5 KNUE are proud to be part of East Texas, and we are especially proud to live in a place where we hold our military and first responders in such high regard. KNUE and Patterson UTI are proud to announce this week’s “Hometown Hero,” Staff Sgt. Monty Ward Jr. of the United States Air force. Now Staff Sgt. Ward serves the community of Arp as a police officer.
