It is an honor and a privilege to announce the KNUE Hometown Hero of the Week — United States Marines Sgt. Micah Turner of Bullard. Sgt. Turner has served in the Marines for 10 years, including three tours to the Middle East.  Recently USMC Sgt Turner and his wife Melissa welcomed their first child!

USMC Sgt Turner was nominated by his sister, Carrie Arneson, who has this to say about USMC Sgt. Turner:

Micah is the very picture of a Marine Corps "Devil Dog" and we are proud of his service!

To show appreciation for all that USMC Sgt Micah Turner does for East Texas and his country, he will receive a plaque courtesy of Congratulations Awards in Jacksonville.
