This month we're celebrating our local military men and women for their service to our country. Each Monday we'll feature a local citizen who is a former or current member of the United States Military during our Military Monday promotion. Send us your hero's photo and story and they could be featured on our sites.

You don't recognize them on a day-to-day basis but local community members like Chis Holtkamp (pictured above) spent years of their life fighting for our country and are now continuing to serve the community right here on the Southcoast.  Holtkamp completed three tours of duty by the time he was 22 and now works as a Veteran's Employment Representative, helping other veterans find employment and training services for those who may face significant barriers to employment.

If this sounds a lot like a service member, past or present, in your life, we'd love to hear it!
