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,” United States Marines Corporal Marcus Netherland.  Corporal Netherland is from Grand Saline and was nominated by his supportive and proud wife, Amanda. Here's what Amanda has to say about her husband:

Marcus is an amazing husband and father. Marcus loves   serving his country as much as he loves his family. Marcus is honest, sweet and fun loving! His family is so proud of him.

To show our appreciation for Corporal Netherlands service and dedication to his country, he will receive a plaque courtesy of our friends at Congratulations Awards in Jacksonville. Congratulations has awards, trophies, engraving and gifts!
