Event honors service of local heroes


ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- A Rochester business is recognizing local heroes.

It's the third year Universal Marine & RV has held its Local Heroes event honoring veterans, active duty military personnel, law enforcement, and firefighters.

"I like to refer to 9/11 when the buildings were coming down and people were running out, the firefighters were running in," said David Marquez, sales manager at Universal Marine & RV. "This is a way for us as a community to get together and thank the heroes of our community in a way that touches people's lives."

The event runs through Saturday. Vendors donated more than 100 items to be given to local heroes.
