Monday's Service Salute was sent in by one of our producers here at NewsChannel 9, Martina Valverde. She wanted to honor her husband, Ken Mills.

This past weekend, Ken was named a 2014 Hero of the Year by the Del Norte Rotary Club of Albuquerque. He has been with the El Paso Fire Department for 22 years. For the last seven years, Ken has helped shape El Paso's youth by acting as Cubmaster and Scoutmaster in the Boy Scouts of America Troop 279. He also served his country in the military in the late 80's, early 90's.

Thank you, Ken, for all you do for our community, and thank you, Martina, for sending in the great salute.
