(WREX) — 13 WREX's 13 Heroes rolled on Tuesday night!
13 WREX recognized Jose Blanco, a Byron native who is currently stationed in Fort Bragg, North Carolina working as a medic!
Jose was nominated by his children, Max and Loren, who say he wakes up and goes to work smiling every day and comes home each night with a smile on his face.
Part of Max and Loren's nomination included: "He’s the best daddy there is and we hope we can grow up and be brave and strong just like him."
13 WREX thanks Jose for his service and for being a hero to all of us in 2020!
If you miss any of our hero stories, you can catch them all on the 13 WREX Holiday Page. We'll be honoring heroes on 13 News at 6 every night through the end of the year.
