Today has already been a really fun and amazing day. We got to visit with a good friend on the radio.
If you are local, you should be listening to Z100 and Kent in the Country in the mornings. You’ll laugh, be inspired, and you’ll also hear some pretty good music. I promise, you won’t be disappointed!
We’ve had the opportunity to meet Kent on a few occasions. The first time I met Kent, he was at an event in Marion, at Kroger, and he was talking about an event with Banterra Bank that was a benefit for This Able Veteran.
What Kent didn’t know at the time, and later learned is that I knew Memphis would be joining our family. We had an opportunity to chat, and I learned that Memphis was one of his favorites. He saw a photo of him on Facebook (Memphis is a famous fella), and he “liked” it because, well, Memphis is a likable guy, and he also wanted to learn more about the organization This Able Veteran.
Time passed, we ran into Kent a few more times, and we had the opportunity to visit him on his morning show at Z100. What struck us about Kent is that he was passionate about veterans, he helped raise awareness about veterans in our community and organizations that can help out our veterans.
Today we had another opportunity to visit Kent. We were part of “Thank a Veteran Week” and when we arrived at the studio, I’m pretty sure Memphis felt right at home. He made his way in and he got really comfy. At one point, I think he was ready to help Kent out on air.
We had the chance to talk about how our lives have changed since Sam was paired with Memphis. We also got to talk about the blog a little and a very important event that is coming up on November 18.
Here’s the link to our morning with Kent at z100. I hope you’ll take some time to read through his post and also listen to the clips from our time in the studio.
We are so thankful for people like Kent who have big hearts for our veterans. It is so good to see people reach out, take time to listen, and work toward helping out our veterans. It always warms my heart to see people who are compassionate and willing to go the extra mile to help raise awareness and advocate for veterans.
Thank you, Kent. And thank you for all that you do to support our veterans.
