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 Matt Young, who was nominated by his wife Amanda! Her entry reads:

"I am nominating my husband Matt, who is a police officer for the Iowa City Police Department. He has so much passion and always strives to do his best, even in the hardest situations. He is a role model for our two sons, who look up to him and think he is the coolest police officer around. We appreciate your hard work and want you to know that it doesn't go unnoticed."
