The Hometown Heroes Tour is in full swing at the Casper Events Center and these heroes got to go backstage to meet Bret Michaels.

Bret’s passionate about honoring our often unsung Wyoming heroes – our active military and veterans, first responders, and teachers. Those that keep us safe, those that sacrifice, those that serve.

Casper nominated five heroes to be recognized at the show. Casper's heroes include firefighter Austin Burgess, Army veteran Chris Atencio, local teacher Shawna Uttenhove, Casper Police detective Jesse Jones, and ER nurse Becky Fleming.
