Each Friday morning at 6:30 a.m., 98.1 KHAK's Brain & Courtlin pay tribute to an Eastern Iowa first responder. The weekly honoree receives a $25 gift card to Wild Hogs Saloon and Eatery in Walford and a $25 gift card to Honor and Respect.

Today we honor Jeff Hartwig, who was nominated by Stacie Barske! The entry reads:

"Jeff is a Marion Police Officer. He decided he wanted to be a police officer because he loves to help people. He's the officer who loves to take the calls to do an un-lock of someone's vehicle, help change a flat tire, or get resources and a hot meal for a homeless citizen. He just wants to help whoever he can, and loves to do it!"
