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,” is from Hallsville, Texas, Trey Hammett of the U.S. Army. Trey was nominated by Carley Pruitt and here is what she had to say about Trey:

I've known Trey for over half my life and he is an inspiration to everyone that meets him. Trey was deployed on two tours in Iraq and was stationed at Fort Carson, Colorado. Trey embodies everything that makes someone a hero. The whole town considers him a hometown hero and we are so proud of him.

To show our appreciation for Trey's dedication and service to his country, he will receive a plaque courtesy of Congratulations Awards in Jacksonvillle. They specialize in awards, engraving, trophies, plaques, gifts and more.
