Honoring our heroes

Heroes, in comic books, come in all shapes and sizes. In real life, they wear uniforms.

They’re real men and women, sons and daughters, husbands and wives, brothers and sisters who keep the rest of us safe from harm and help us when we are in trouble.

The Lafayette-Oxford-University Community is blessed to have trained and dedicated individuals who put their lives in harms way every day and often times do not receive the credit they are due for such selfless sacrifice.

The Oxford EAGLE and local businesses are proud to honor these hometown heroes with a special three-page special section in today’s edition devoted to thanking these first responders for their bravery.
