Townsquare Media and the Jay & Linda Grunin Foundation are teaming up to salute our local heroes with our Warrior of the Week program.

Congratulations to Dylan Emmett, Our Warrior of the Week for the week of October 16, 2017.

A Marine & Lanoka Harbor resident, Dylan Emmett began his military career while still in high school, participating in a pre-boot camp program during his senior year. Upon graduating, Emmett left for actual boot camp in 2015 and subsequently became a machine gun team leader.

Emmett was eventually deployed in 2017 where he served in the Middle East and became a black belt in Marine Martial Arts while serving.

Emmett is due back in the States within the next week and will return as our proud warrior.

Congratulations to Dylan Emmett, our Warrior of the Week.

Do you know a deserving past or present military member? Nominate them now. Every Military Monday, we’ll share one of the nominations and honor that person as our Warrior of the Week.
