Our latest Hometown Hero is Wayne Baldwin, the Veterans Service Officer in Parke County. The former Marine worked for the postal service for over 30 years before helping vets get benefits they deserve.
He says this job means three things to him. Actually getting assistance to vets and their families, assisting those who need to attend VA clinics and hospitals and just talking and getting to know the vets he serves.
Wayne says, "I would do this job for free but my reward is getting them the benefits they deserve."
Wayne was nominated by a woman who's battle with the system lasted years and she says he did so much to help her out. That's why Wayne Baldwin is our latest Hometown Hero.
