The Kentucky Soldier
Kentucky Military Service Blog
A blog honoring Kentucky's brave men and women who have served or are currently serving in the military. Our mission is to provide an informative platform that brings together stories, interviews, and resources related to Kentucky's rich history of military service. Through our content offerings, we strive to foster a greater appreciation for our local veterans by highlighting their experiences, accomplishments, and forgotten stories of bravery. We also seek to increase awareness of resources available in the community which can help our returning heroes transition back into civilian life more easily. We invite all members of the public - patriotic Kentuckians past and present as well as those not from this great state - to join us on this journey in giving recognition where it is due: thank you for your service!
