Most recently their former Commander Dale Clark was sworn in as the new AMVETS State of Kentucky Commander!

The AMVETS know how to have a good time.  They can throw the best kind of party and always welcome others to be a part of their fun and celebrating the fourth of July is no different for these kind folks.

Our buddy, Dave Daugherty, stopped by the station and asked if we would make sure that the community knew about their celebration and we said absolutely!
