ALBANY, GA (WALB) - WALB has produced a half-hour program to recognize the men and women who protect our freedoms.
We are highlighting some our brave men and women who selflessly serve our country and some of those who will live forever in our hearts and memories.
We are bringing you our special from the Marine Corps Logistics Base, the largest employer in Southwest Georgia, and from Moody Air Force Base near Valdosta, which also employs nearly 5,000 people.
Another rich piece of military history is in Sumter County. Thousands of veterans and their spouses are buried in a historic cemetery.
June 6th was the 71st anniversary of the Allied invasion of France known as D-Day. Many those who survived the largest seaborne invasion in history have passed away. We have the story of one Albany veteran, still committed to helping others.
Thank you for joining us, and remember to keep those who serve our country every day in your thoughts and prayers.
We hope you enjoy our tribute to true military heroes.
