The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines a hero as, "one who shows great courage."

With that in mind, we would like to ask for your help honoring all of Cheyenne's Hometown Heroes!

Do you know a man or woman deployed with the armed forces who deserves to be honored for his or her service to our country? What about a local first responder who serves our community day after day? A local community volunteer who puts everything into helping others or our city?

Here is your chance to shine the spotlight on those individuals who deserve it more than the rest.

Now that you have someone in mind the rest is simple. Just give us a name, rank (if applicable), and a few sentences about why you think this person deserves to be highlighted as one of Cheyenne's Hometown Heroes and we'll do the rest.

Oh, and please don't forget a photo!
