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. Well, we want to take it a step further.

KNUE is proud to present our 'Hometown Heroes' promotion, where we will honor an East Texas military member or first responder each week.

Here's how it works: All you have to do is fill out the simple form below with the required information and attach a picture of your Hometown Hero nominee. Each Monday we will pick our Hometown Hero for that week and Amy Austin will feature them right here on KNUE.com and on the radio station.

Each week's Hometown Hero also will receive a plaque from our friends at Congratulations Awards in Jacksonville.

Thank y'all for joining us in honoring our East Texas military members and first responders. They deserve anything we can offer plus a whole lot more!

Just a note: While we are certainly appreciative of every military member and first responder around the country, please limit your nomination to one who is either currently living in or is from the East Texas area.
