PORTLAND (WGME) -- It's time to honor an American hero in this week's "Thank a Vet" segment.

This is retired Major John Alexander Pape.

Terri sent us this photo of him speaking in front of a World War I memorial.

She says Pape served in the Army National Guard for 24 years.

During that time, he had a 19-month combat tour in Kosovo.

Terri tells us he continues to serve as an advocate for fellow veterans through local organizations like the American Legion and the VFW.

If you'd like us to honor a Maine veteran, send their photo and some information to our WGME Facebook page.

Keep watching us here at 7 to see your American hero honored on CBS 13.
