KNUE + Patterson UTI ‘Hometown Hero’ of the Week: Staff Sgt. Jonathan Shirley
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,” U.S. Marines Staff Sgt. Jonathan Shirley. Staff Sg.t Shirley served six years as a Marine before serving in the United States Army for the last eight years. He grew up in Holly Lake Ranch and currently lives in Henderson.
He has served two tours in Iraq and one tour in Afghanistan. Staff Sgt. Shirley volunteered to become an Army Recruiter and return home to East Texas to tell the Army's story and spread the Army's values from the Longview Army Recruiting Center. He also serves as a volunteer for the Churchill Volunteer Fire Department in Rusk County.
To show our appreciation for all that Sgt. Shirley has done for his country and community, he will receive a plague, courtesy of Congratulations Awards, Trophies, Engraving and Gifts in Jacksonville.
Thank you, Staff Sgt. Shirley, for your commitment and sacrifice!
