WKRG News 5 is recognizing the Gulf Coast’s veterans, their families and their caretakers. These men and women served our country with pride, and we want to give back. This group crosses all social-economic lines and is diverse in geography, ethnicity and age.
Join WKRG News 5 as we honor our heroes each month. News 5 will highlight our selected military member during the 6 p.m. newscast the third Monday of the month on WKRG News 5. Additional support of the program will air throughout the month to support our mission of bringing awareness to our heroes.
