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 Air Force Sgt. Jamie Britt.  Nominated by David Britt, here's what David had to say about Sgt. Jamie Britt:

Sgt. Britt has dedicated his life to the American dream of freedom and democracy. Serving in the U.S. Air Force, Sgt. Britt is a meteorologist. Sgt. Britt also served in Operation Iraqi Freedom and is currently deployed in Afghanistan. He is a proud father to 3 beautiful daughters and is  a loving husband.

To show our appreciation for his dedication to his country, Sgt. Britt will receive a plaque courtesy of Congratulations Awards, Trophies, Engraving and Gifts in Jacksonville.
