Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Three Middle Tennesseans were nominated for a national award for their service in the law enforcement and first responder community.

Metro Police Sgt. Mark Chesnut, Mount Juliet Police Officer Charles McWhirter and Greenbrier Fire Chief Billy Wilson have been nominated to become America's Most Wanted All-Star.

The winner will receive a $10,000 cash award.

Chesnut was shot multiple times during a traffic stop in June 2009. He assisted officers quickly by telling them which direction the suspects were headed.

McWhirter started Mount Juliet's first Honor Guard after he witnessed the deaths of two of his fellow officers. He reportedly was moved by the way their services were handled; he wanted to start up the same program in Mount Juliet.
