TILTON -- Our Town is a close-knit community. but everyone seems to know this Hometown Hero. Benny Wear is one of the few listed on the town's Korean War Memorial. He was a cook which makes him pretty popular around town.

Over the years, he's volunteered to cook for dozens of events, all for free, just because he wants to help. At 82, he doesn't cook as much as he used to, but he makes sure to surprise the mayor and other city workers with lunch from time to time.

Benny Wear's specialty is frying fish. It's something he learned during the seven years he spent in the Army. Wear was a staff sergeant who's still doing what he can for his country and community.
