Mobile-Pensacola, with more than 157,000 active and retired military personnel, has a rich history of military presence, from the Blue Angels to the USS Alabama.
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 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. newscasts on WKRG News 5 and in the 9 p.m. on WFNA Channel 55. Additional support of the program will air throughout the month to support our mission of bringing awareness to our heroes.
