It is an honor and a privilege to announce our KNUE + Brookside Dental Hometown Hero of the Week — U.S. Air Force Sgt. Koree Copeland of Timpson, who was nominated by his proud mother, Kristi Pickup.

Sgt Copeland is currently stationed in Korea, and has been in the Air Force since 2005. Sgt. Copeland has served in Iraq and Afghanistan and is married to his wife Brianne and father of his 4-year-old son, Brodee.

Here's what Sgt. Copeland's mother had to say about her son:

My son is everything to me and our family is so proud of him for serving his country. We just want him to know it!
