A Marine who grew up in Hamburg took a spin on Tuesday night's episode of Wheel of Fortune.

Staff Sergeant Sean Honsberger appeared on the show as part of its Military Week.

Sean now lives in California but his family and friends gathered at the VFW in Hamburg to watch the hometown hero.

They say they're proud of everything Sean has done and had their fingers crossed that he'd win some cash.

"Being a VFW we're very pro military and to have a son that's on the show being in the military, it's awesome," said Eric Honsberger, Sean's father.

And Sean made everyone in Hamburg even more proud Tuesday. He was the big winner of the night, walking away with $42,800.
