ATTENTION MUHLENBERG - Would you Give One Hour for Someone that Gave their Life for You? 

MUHLENBERG COUNTY, Ky. (9/5/2014) – What if you were asked to sacrifice sixty minutes for someone that gave their lives to protect you, your family, and/or other local citizens? On Saturday, Sept. 6, you have a chance to answer that question.

KenCo News had the honor of speaking with Greenville Firefighter and Deputy Commander of the Honor Guard, Chuck Browning, regarding the annual Green River Fire Association Honor Guard event to be held at the Felix E. Martin Jr. Hall in Greenville on Saturday evening.

“This event is a memorial service for all emergency services, including military, that gave their lives for our community,” said Mr. Browning. “We will have a ceremony that will last around an hour, honoring each branch of emergency services with those that have fallen. This covers Military, all branches of Law Enforcement, Fire, EMS, Emergency Management and Dispatchers.”

In speaking with KenCo reporters, Mr. Browning noted that he recently spoke with a military individual and told him that our military was the ultimate first responder, and that if not for them, there would be no freedom.

The Green River Fire Association Honor Guard Ceremony will begin at 5:00 PM and go until approximately 6:00 PM. At somewhere between 6:30 and 6:45, weather and emergency situations allowing, PHI/Air Evac will be landing a chopper outside of the Martin Hall.

KenCo News Director J.L. Graham wishes to issue the following message to our local citizens regarding this event…

“How many lives have been saved by first responders? How many criminals are taken down every year by our local law enforcement? How many people have been brought from burning homes by firefighters? Beyond that, how many first responders died trying to do these things, because they put our lives before theirs? How many families out there have mourned for the loss of their husbands, wives, moms and dads, because those people gave all for those they didn’t even know? This is an awesome opportunity. This is a chance to show those that gave all, and their families, how much we appreciate their sacrifices. We can never pay back this debt we owe these heroes. We, at KenCo News, strongly urge our local citizens to take a single hour and honor those that sacrifice their entire lives. We owe them this, to say the least.”
