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 William Redmond, who was nominated anonymously! The entry reads:

"William works countless hours as security at Mercy Hospital while going to college to get his medical assistant degree, as well as volunteering as an EMT at Center Point EMS. He works as much overtime at the hospital as possible, sitting with patients who need extra care, and he's on the crisis team at Mercy for employee health."
