They’re your friends, family and neighbors, and now Houghton’s Honors Heroes.

KICKS 1063 and Houghton’s Jackson Street Pub want to salute the Police, Fire, EMT’s, active-duty and veteran military personnel who keep us safe and serve our community. They’d never ask for recognition, but KICKS 1063 wants you to tell us about the Hometown Hero in your life with Houghton’s Honors Heroes.

Our latest Hometown Hero is Sergeant First Class John Heller of Coon Valley. He was nominated by his mom, Debbie Heller. she tells us:

“1st Sergeant John Heller will be returning in early April from Texas where he has been for the last year training our troops. John exhibits a strong work ethic and respect for his Country and the sacrifice he endures. He is always someone who can put a smile on your face and good for a laugh or two. A wonderful husband, a brother, true friend who is loyal and everlasting, and a son who makes his Momma and Pa so very proud. Deserving of so much, but so humble he would never expect or ask, a man, a soldier who makes his own way.”

Now it’s your turn! Fill out the form to nominate a police officer, firefighter, EMT, active-duty military or veteran. Each month we’ll choose one hero at random to receive a $100 gift card from Houghton’s Jackson Street Pub in La Crosse, along with the recognition they greatly deserve. Houghton’s Honors Heroes, with KICKS 1063!
