Each month, FOX31 honors one hero who exemplifies what it means to serve our country.

Of course, heroes come in many shapes and sizes: active military, veterans, military families, volunteers who make a difference in the lives of those who serve – even pooches who give their lives in the service of our military men and women.

We want to tell their stories, honor the work they do and give back a little to those who give so much.

If you know of a hero who exemplifies extraordinary courage and commitment, we’d love to hear from you!

Simply fill out the form below and tell us why he or she is a deserving recipient. If your hero is chosen, we’ll contact you. We’ll look over every submission, but with so many wonderful nominations, we can’t guarantee that your hero will be chosen or that we’ll be able to notify those who are not selected.
