In an effort to honor the brave men and women of our armed forces who are currently serving at home and abroad, I will be hosting a “Hometown Hero” page on by website and Facebook page. If you have a friend or loved one who is currently serving our country, please consider sharing a photo of them, as well as their hometown and where they are serving. As part of my “Hometown Heros” page, I will post photographs of different servicemen and women from across my Senate District to remind us of the many soldiers who are currently serving their country with honor, dignity and sacrifice. Please remember to have the permission of the person whose photograph you are submitting.
