Our latest Hometown Hero is Blake Wagle Holston of Terre Haute. His mother, Theresa Wagle, says as a little boy Blake always said he wanted to be a soldier. In high school, Blake brought a Marine Recruiter home and begged to join. Theresa gave her consent on one of the hardest and proudest days of her life. After graduation he went to California to become a Marine. He has served in Japan and is now on the West Coast. His mother is honored that her son was so young and know that he is willilng to give his life for the freedom of his country. By Blake's example, his brother was so proud he joined the Army and will be our next Hometown Hero.
