Celebrate Our Vets – It’s The Right Thing To Do.
Anytime we can help promote something of benefit to veterans, we are there! So it is with great pleasure that I tell you about a couple of upcoming events.
The first is a little sad and a little short on details, but I want to share what we know so far.
For years Doug Betteral, owner of Better All Auto Sales put together a Veteran's day party to pay tribute to his fellow vets, Doug served on the aircraft carrier Kitty Hawk during the Vietnam War in the 1960s. He never got over his appreciation for that ship and crew and he never tired of trying to help out veterans in need. Doug was a Red White and Blue Patriotic American.
Each year on Veterans Day he would have free hats, coffee, and doughnuts in the morning as we broadcast the KIT Morning News live from his showroom. Then he would use one of his trucks to drive in the parade and haul some vets who had a little trouble getting around Afterward he would serve up a hot lunch for any vet that wanted to enjoy some good food and conversation. Doug passed away earlier this year but the guys at the dealership asked if KIT wanted to come down for one more salute to Doug and all Veterans and so that's our plan for next Thursday morning 11/11/21 6am to 9 am at 914 South First street.
We have no idea yet of what the day might bring but we want to be there...stay tuned for more details.
The other event we want to tell you about is Prosser Memorial Health’s 5th Annual Veterans Day Breakfast For Veterans & Their Families
Prosser Memorial Health will host their annual Veterans Day Breakfast, Thursday, November 11th from 7:00am to 10:00am at Prosser Memorial Hospital. Veterans and their families can drive through the Prosser Memorial Hospital campus and pick up complimentary hot to-go breakfasts, coffee, and pastries. An appreciation gift will be provided to Veterans. It's a nice gesture from the folks who got started serving veterans.
Prosser Memorial Health opened its doors as a 19-bed facility in 1947 and was dedicated to the community’s veterans of World War II. Nearly seventy-five years later, Prosser Memorial Health has grown into a progressive healthcare organization providing compassionate care, the latest in medical technology, and a mission to improve the health of the community.
