NEARLY TWO DOZEN KENTUCKY VETERANS NOMINATED FOR HALL OF FAME

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS 11:) – The 2017 Kentucky Veterans Hall of Fame inductees were introduced in grand fashion Tuesday morning.

Governor Matt Bevin, Lt. Governor Jenean Hampton and other state leaders took the stage at the ceremony in Frankfort.

It started with the Fastrax Parachute team, which nailed a perfect landing carrying our nation’s flag. H.B Deatherage, founder and president of the Kentucky Veterans Hall of Fame tells us, “We honor Veterans for what they’ve done after the service, it’s not what they did in the service it’s the fact that they continue to serve when they got out.” For the full article, visit the WHAS 11 website.
