February 22, 2007 at 9:32 AM (PT)
Country radio legend and BOB KINGSLEY'S COUNTRY TOP 40 host BOB KINGSLEY will take some time during the upcoming CRS-38 to bring awareness to the WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT. During the Keynote Breakfast on THURSDAY (3/1), KINGSLEY will introduce the group's founder and Exec. Dir., JOHN MELIA, to talk about the non-profit organization that assists severely wounded service men and women.
MELIA, a former 1st Lieutenant in the MARYLAND ARMY NATIONAL GUARD who received a medical retirement due to the injuries he received in a helicopter crash off the coast of SOMALIA, started the organization in 2002 and is dedicated to providing free programs and services to those injured in the war on terrorism. The group also enlists other veterans to help their fellow soldiers and educates the public in ways they too can help.
