All over the country, there are men and women who make one of the greatest sacrifices we know, serving our country. Many of them are brothers, sisters, husbands, wives, sons and daughters of people right here at home in the Hudson Valley.

Tompkins Mahopac Bank, Mental Health America of Dutchess County and WPDH want to hear about the Vets Who Rock in your life. Share your short story about them in the form below. Every month we’ll honor one military person as the Vet Who Rocks with $500 and put them into the drawing for $10,000 to be awarded the week of Veteran’s Day.

It’s time to recognize, remember and respect the brave Vets Who Rock, thanks to you, their family and friends, and to our community partners, Tompkins Mahopac Bank and Mental Health America of Dutchess County.

Tell us about the veteran in your life and why we should select them as a Vet Who Rocks.
