Hometown Heroes – Hall of Heroes

Abilene is home to quite a few extraordinary men and women, many of whom serve (or have served) in the military and also those who are local first responders (police, firefighters, EMS). Townsquare Media is honored to be a part of this great community and would like to thank those who put their lives on the line each and every day.

Please, join us in honoring our Hometown Heroes by thanking them for their willingness to sacrifice their lives for the freedom we enjoy daily. Not only do these heroes put their lives on the line day in and day out, but they also sacrifice time with their families that we take for granted.

Deployed U.S. Airman Returns Home Early to Surprise Son at Football Game

When you're in a military family, you spend many days and nights without loved ones because of deployment. Well, Master Sergeant Joseph Martel returned home from deployment, a month earlier than his son thought he was coming home.

To make a long story short, Martel was able to dress up as an opposing player on the team his son was playing in football. Midway through the game, the refs called players to the middle of the field for a meeting. At that point, the father removed his helmet so his son could see him and the tears flowed and rightfully so.
