Region 8 Heroes

Region 8 Heroes

With America at War with battles at home and abroad, K8 News would like to extend the opportunity to our Good Neighbors to tell us about your Region 8 Hero, along with a personal message to your Hero that we will broadcast on K8 News and publish on our Internet site: .

K8 News wants to join you in saluting those brave men and women of our area who are protecting our freedom. We invite you, the friends and family of our nation's fighting forces, to send us photos of your loved ones and we'll post then here in our online scrapbook.

KAIT is organizing care packages to be sent to to our active duty military members from Region 8, but we need your help!!! In order to send packages, the Department of Defense requires that we send mail to specific military personnel. This means that we need to know the APO addresses for them. In order to help us out, please make sure to include this information in your Region 8 Hero submission.

Tell us a little bit about your active duty soldier/airman/sailor/marine:

  • Name of Hero
  • Rank
  • Service Branch
  • APO Address
  • Unit and Occupation Specialty
  • Local Family Members
  • Favorite Things
  • Your Name
  • Your Message to Your Hero

You can mail your photos/message to us at:

K8 News Region 8 Heroes
P.O. Box 790
472 CR 766
Jonesboro, AR 72401

Or click below to send a photo/message of your Hero via e-mail (we can only accept .gif or .jpg images). Please include an e-mail address or phone number where we can contact you if we need to.

Don't forget to check out our "Region 8 Heroes" section of our Internet site, where you and your loved ones overseas can read messages from one another, and where you can draw strength and support from other loved ones left behind.
