Honoring the Greatest Generation

By  | 

The men and women who have served our nation's military were the guests of honor at an Armed Forces Day program in Enterprise Saturday morning.

It was a special tribute to the veterans of WWII for their efforts in helping to secure the freedoms we now enjoy.

World War II veteran, Earl Kennedy, served three years in the U.S. Army during "the war to end all wars," and in those three years he was captured and held as a POW three different times. He noted that many of our heroes didn't come back.

Russell Bogue has nine Bronze Star Medals, the military's 4th highest award for bravery, heroism or meritorious service. He said he's very proud of his country.
