FORT SILL, TX (KAUZ) -

A Wichita Falls man is this week's "Heroes of Texoma." Sgt. Jose Jerrod Holder joined the U.S. Army a year after graduating from Hirschi High School in 2006.

"I really just had to change my lifestyle and I needed direction," Sgt. Holder said. 

During his time in the service Sgt. Holder has traveled to Hawaii, south Texas, Germany, and Oklahoma. He's been deployed once for 10 months in Afghanistan. 

"He is proud to be in the army," his girlfriend Sparcle Harrell said. 

She said the best thing about him is that he's a family man. 

"He's loving, he's caring, He's a family guy. He cares about others and he's an all-around good guy," she said. 

His favorite part about serving our country, he says, is the people. 

"I would have to say just meeting new people and leading and training soldiers," Sgt. Holder said. 

Sgt. Holder is currently stationed at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. He is proud to have served nine years for this country and thankful he's being recognized this way. 

"It's a good feeling. I'm very thankful and humbled that someone took the time out to nominate me. I'm very thankful for my service to my country," Sgt. Holder said.
