101.1 WNOE and the New Orleans Baby Cakes are saluting our heroes with Our Hero Mondays. At every Monday home game tickets are only $5 for police, military, firefighters, EMTs, doctors, nurses, and their families. Plus one of our local heroes will throw out the first pitch. This week, it's St. Bernard firefighter and Navy veteran Rodney Ourso.
From his nomination:
My dad, Rodney Ourso, is not only my hero but also a hero to many others. He was a high ranked Navy officer for 30 years and he is a St. Bernard Firefighter. While everyone evacuated to Hurricane Katrina, he stayed and helped many escape from their homes. Rodney Ourso has also been deployed overseas many times to protect this country. I believe he deserves this and much more. Please help me show him how thankful we all are for his service. - Katie Ourso
