Today’s program pays tribute to the countless men and women who have served in the US Armed Forces from our Revolutionary past through Iraq and Afghanistan.  First observed at the close of World War 1 on November 11, 1919, Veterans Day is the public recognition of honoring those who served their country in times of peace and war.

Joining us on today’s show is Vietnam Veteran Haywood Fennell, Sr. a multi-talented community leader in the Boston area. He will share his own personal military story and will discuss the upcoming African American Art Exhibit and upcoming opening of the Veterans Education and Research Center in Worcester, Massachusetts.

We’ll also pay tribute to the legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen, including men like Second Lieutenant Wilson Albert Copeland, my late father, who served as a Tuskegee Airman from 1941 to 1946. A new film, Double Victory, debuts at the University of Massachusetts - Boston about the Tuskegee Airmen, hosted by Chancellor Keith J. Motley and Oscar winning actor Cuba Gooding, Jr.
