Remembering a Hero, Lt. Colonel Charles Kettles
This program is dedicated to Medal of Honor recipient Lt. Colonel Charles Kettles who passed away on Monday 21 January 2019. It is our duty and honor to replay past interviews with Charles.
The first is from 1 November 2015 before he received his medal and the second half is from 28 August 2016 after he received the Medal of Honor from President Obama.
Friends of Lt. Colonel Kettles Share Their Stories
Guests include William Vollano, who was instrumental in getting Kettles’ Distinguished Service Medal upgraded to the Medal of Honor. Colonel Donald Long will also join us.
