I was recently honored to be recognized by the Alabama National Guard for WAAY-TV’s partnership. Along with the Alabama Broadcasters Association (ABA), our TV station helps the Guard with recruiting messages and advertising. Major General Sheryl E. Gordon met with the ABA and recognized each of our Board Members, including me.
The Alabama National Guard is doing important work. During the day we were there, we learned that many are deployed in hurrican areas still, planes are headed out from Alabama to take much-needed supplies to devastated Puerto Rico, and our primary media contact is heading to Afghanistan to help train peace-keeping forces. That’s just a small sampling of what’s going on.
