In today's political climate, it often seems that those who serve our country are taken for granted. Sure, veterans are honored collectively, but when was the last time you thanked a veteran individually? WTUG is doing just that, but we need your help.

Text "veteran" to us at (205) 391-0093. In that text, include your name and the best time to reach you. We'll call you to get the information on the veteran you want to honor.

Sure, it's nice to receive free meals and other perks for Veterans Day, but that doesn't compare to receiving a "thank you" from those who mean the most to you. Let's make it happen! Veterans Day is just a few days away.
