GWYNN OAK, Md. — WMAR-2 News is committed to improving the lives of Veterans in Maryland by giving light to their stories, struggles and triumphs. Every week a local veteran will be featured in our Veteran Spotlight contest.

This week's honoree is Lamonte Tyler of Gwynn Oak. He is a Gulf War veteran and served the United States Army for four years as an E-4.

Tyler is a graduate of Northwestern Senior High School and holds multiple college degrees from Fayettville State, North Carolina Central, Walden University and Columbia Southern University. He is also a member of Omega Psi Phi.

He has a passion for helping the community. You will often find him on Sundays mentoring kids on a football field or training children and women in self-defense. He regularly buys food for the homeless and is always looking for ways to give back and help others.

Thank you for your service to our country and dedication to the community.
