Thank-A-Vet: Tom

Today we recognize Tom. (Amy Trout Fuhrmann)

PORTLAND (WGME) -- It's time to honor an American hero in this week's Thank-A-Vet segment.

Today we recognize Tom.

This photo of him ready to ride his hog was sent to us by Amy.

She tells CBS 13 that Tom is a Purple Heart recipient who saw the worst of the worst in Vietnam, even saying they made the movie "Platoon" based on his platoon during the war.

From everyone here at CBS 13, thank you for your service.

To have us honor your American hero, send us their picture, tell us who they are, when they served, and why they are so important in your life.

Send that information to our WGME Facebook page.

Keep watching us here at 7 to see your American hero honored on CBS 13.
