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.

As we were polishing off our $5 footlong and getting ready to hit the road, I couldn't help but notice a small orange amp at one of the tables behind me. So, we stuck around to find out what the heck was going on.
