PBS to Air Special on Supporting our Veterans

Tomorrow on Veterans Day PBS will air a special celebrating a group of senior citizens who honor us as a nation when the general public is busy about their lives. I will be representing my service to our country and honoring those who have fallen. I invite you to tune into PBS and watch.

On call 24 hours a day for the past five years, a group of senior citizens has made history by greeting nearly 900,000 American troops at a tiny airport in Bangor,Maine.The Way We Get By is an intimate look at three of these greeters as they confront the universal losses that come with aging and rediscover their reason for living. Bill Knight, Jerry Mundy and Joan Gaudet find the strength to overcome their personal battles and transform their lives through service. This inspirational and surprising story shatters the stereotypes of today's senior citizens as the greeters redefine the meaning of community (copied from email by PBS's Community Engagement and Outreach Assistant).
Our troops deserve every ounce of support.
