What is a Hometown Hero?
Hometown Heroes are individuals who make our communities what they are. Whether they have devoted their lives to protecting our country at home and abroad, or serve as first responders at the scenes of crimes, fires and natural disasters, these brave Americans have risked their lives for the safety and freedom of us all. Every Hometown Hero deserves our appreciation and gratitude, and the Wolves are providing that opportunity prior to select home games this season.
If you know a member of the U.S. Military or local police and fire departments who has gone above and beyond the call of duty in serving his or her community, tell us their story using the form on the right.
The Wolves will periodically select winners based on your nominations. Each Hometown Hero will be recognized before a Wolves game and join Wayne Messmer on the ice during the National Anthem.
The Laurus Foundation
The Laurus Foundation strives to advance the lives of individuals with disabilities, especially those who have served our country in the military, whether or not their injury or disability is service-related. After nearly a decade of waging war on terror, it is well known that the signature wounds of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom have become Traumatic Brain Injury and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Learn more about these injuries and how the Laurus Foundation can help.
