The Most American Month
What's the most patriotic month? Most would say July because of Independence Day. Others might say May - Memorial Day remembers the ultimate sacrifice of service men and women in defense of our freedom.
I submit November as the most American of months. Especially this November. An election day on the 2nd, Veteran's Day on the 11th, and Thanksgiving on the 25th. Three opportunities this month to celebrate America.
For the sixth year, on Thursday, Novmember 11, Diane and I will be broadcasting the WIKY Morning Show live from the LST 325 welcoming Tri-state vets aboard for a free breakfast in their honor. The breakfast will be served from 7-10 am. It's always a great menu, cooked by the ship's many volunteers, and served below in the comfort of the cavernous tank deck of the ship. Hundreds of vets are expected.
If you know a veteran or someone on active duty, please pass the word. All are welcome.
