June 24, 2009 at 2:42 PM (PT)
CBS RADIO's Country KUPL (98.7)/PORTLAND, OR morning show host LEE ROGERS will be presented the 'VETERANS OF OREGON HONORABLE SERVICE MEDAL' on tomorrow mornings show. GEORGE VAUGHN and JOHN NEUMAN of the VETERANS OF OREGON will do the honors.
"When we came back from SOUTHEAST ASIA in the late 60s, we had to change out of our uniforms at the SAN FRANCISCO airport to keep from being abused," ROGERS said. "I swore right then and there that I would do anything I could to make sure future service men and women wouldn't have to go through the same thing. Fortunately my radio career has given me many opportunities to do that and I'm honored to accept this award."
VETERANS OF OREGON is dedicated to educating younger generations on the importance of patriotism and service to our country. This non-profit organization is set to help generations of veterans come together.
