To showcase Arizona citizens doing amazing things in local communities, paralleling the efforts put forth by airmen every day, Luke Air Force Base officials want to fly a deserving citizen in the back seat of one of their F-16 jets.
Heroes might include, but are not limited to: a wounded warrior, an average citizen who heroically saved a life, a renowned teacher, a community humanitarian volunteer, a local firefighter, paramedic or police officer, one who mentors children or volunteers as a coach or tutor in a youth program, or someone who dedicates their life to working with at-risk children.
Nominations are accepted through 11:59 p.m. Friday, Jan. 24.
Follow Luke on Facebook @Luke56thFW, and on Monday, Jan. 27, the top 10 nominations will be posted for the public to vote and determine a winner.
Information about required physical standards and other criteria including the official nomination form available at https://www.luke.af.mil/Luke-Days-2020/ under the “Hometown Hero” drop-down menu.
