This Sunday the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum will honor four local heroes, who have quietly, without seeking headlines or attention, helped others. All four will be honored in a special ceremony Sunday on the flight deck of the Intrepid.
The “Hometown Heroes” project is now in its third year. Winners, who are nominated by friends, family and neighbors, receive a number of prizes.
