Every day, great men and women across the country and around the world put their lives on the line. Whether it's our military servicemen and women, or our area police officers, firefighters, emergency medical personnel or others who may find themselves put in harm's way while pursuing their profession, we want them to know we appreciate them and respect what they do.

We want to do a little something to honor those everyday American heroes in our lives. If you know an American hero who has served, or continues to serve, our country with distinction, either through the military or public service, we'd like you to share their story with us. We'll share some of the stories on the air, and also select some of those featured in the stories to receive VIP tickets and parking passes to Harvest Jam.

To nominate someone for our American Heroes salute, simply fill out this form below. Then we may reach out to you for more information and to invite them personally to attend Harvest Jam courtesy of our radio station.

We'll be accepting entries until September 2, 2016, at which time we'll select five Harvest Jam special guests. Those guests will receive special VIP tickets to Harvest Jam 2016, featuring headliner Rodney Atkins, along with priority parking passes for the event and an incredible prize basket from First Alliance Credit Union. In addition, one of our heroes will receive a free Gutter Helmet courtesy of Home Solutions Midwest. The Gutter Helmet technology is designed to keep your gutters free from leaves and other debris so you can eliminate the need to do any more gutter cleaning maintenance!

So don't wait! Nominate your American hero today!
