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 Sgt. and Longview Police Officer Jerry Ramsey.

Nominated by his wife, Brittany, here is what she had to say about her husband:

Jerry serves as a Sgt. in the United States Marine Corps where he was deployed in 2010 to Afghanistan. Jerry now serves his community as a Longview police officer. He is a dedicated husband and father of our two girls. He risked his life for his country and continues to do so every day as a police officer.

To show our appreciation for all that Jerry Ramsey does for his country and community, Jerry will receive a plaque courtesy of Congratulations Awards in Jacksonville.

Thank you for your service, Jerry! All of us at 101.5 KNUE and all of East Texas appreciate your dedication.
