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 is proud to announce this week’s “Hometown Hero,” from Chandler, Billy Jennings who serves in the United States Army.

Billy was nominated by E.G. Molley, who shared this very moving story:

Billy and my son, Andy, grew up together and had big dreams of joining the service together when they were old enough. But fate had other plans. Billy joined the Army in 2000, but we lost Andy in a car wreck. Billy went on to serve 2 tours in Iraq and was there when they pulled Saddam out of hiding. After his second tour there he was deployed to Afghanistan. He was also deployed to Germany for awhile. Billy and his wife, Kami, son Hayden and duaghter Kylie, are now stationed in Alaska.

Billy deserves this honor because he has defended his country. I feel like my son Andy, has been his guardian angel.


To show Billy our appreciation for all that he has done for his country, Billy will receive a plaque courtesy of Congratulations Awards in Jacksonville.
