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 + Patterson UTI are proud to announce this week’s “Hometown Hero" -- or rather, heroes -- the "Hookset Brothers."

The Hookset Brothers are Adam Troy and Martin Montoyoa of Bullard, both formerly of the U.S. Army. They were nominated by Todd Fleischer, who shared the remarkable story of these two heroes:

The Hookset Brothers are two Army veterans who live in Bullard. They were both injured while deployed. When they returned home they both suffered from PTSD. Through their faith in God they found a way for them to handle this terrible disease through fishing. They have since taken numerous wounded soldiers out for a day of fishing. This is all done at NO cost to any soldier. The Hookset Brothers have teamed up with Operation Comfort to host the first-ever Hookset Brothers Fishing Tournament on Saturday Sept 26, 2015 on Lake Palestine. There will be wounded soldiers from Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio taking part in this. Once again at NO cost to them. The Hookset Brothers are Adam Troy and Martin Montoya. For all they have done for our country in their service and continue to do they, in my opinion these two are DEFINITELY Hometown Heroes.

To show our appreciation for Adam and Martin's dedication and service to their country and community, they will receive a plaque courtesy of Tyler Trophy. They specialize in awards, engraving, trophies, plaques, gifts and more.

Thank you for your service, Hookset Brothers, and we are proud to call you a fellow East Texan.
