Thank-A-Vet: Michael Kelley

Today, we recognize Michael Kelley from Westbrook. (Craig Kelley)

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

Today, we recognize Michael Kelley from Westbrook.

His father Craig sent us this photo of the Navy sailor, who is currently stationed at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii.

His father tells us he serves on the USS Hopper destroyer, which he says was built at Bath Iron Works, and launched in 1996, the same year Kelley was born.

We're told Kelley just finished his 2nd deployment to the Persian Gulf in only two years.

From all us here at CBS 13, thank you Michael Kelley for your service.

To have us honor your American hero, send us their picture, tell us who they are, when they served, and why they are so important in your life.

Send that information to our WGME Facebook page.

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