WMAR-2 News is the Voice For Veterans, but for this Veterans Day we want to hear yours.

To honor each local veteran, we are collecting pictures and shout-outs to share online and on-air.

Here is an example of what we are looking for:

Dorphin C. Wigley

Dorphin C. Wigley was an Army Master Sergeant that served in Panama and the Philippines. In 1916 he was awarded the Distinguished Service Medal for voluntarily entering a closed place at Form Monroe and removing sacks of powder that were in close proximity to burning powder and smoldering debris and the risk of his own life, preventing further disaster.
