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 Jose Nieves, Our Warrior of the Week for the week of October 2, 2017.

A Marine and Long Branch native, Jose's nominator describes him as a great person with a huge heart. Jose is currently undergoing very intense training and will soon be deployed to Japan.

His nominator continues, "his skills are remarkable and is going up on ranks . My pledge goes out to him and his courage for serving our country."

Congratulations to Jose Nieves, 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.
