I received a very special gift from Col Lorenzo Valenzuela.
He stopped by KOOL recently and left a package for me and chatted for a few minutes with Steve. He told Steve that the troops not only listen to KOOL on the internet, but they record it as well. Then make CD’s so our troops can listen to our radio station. That, to me, is humbling.
Here’s a small part of what Col Valenzuela wrote in his letter:
Greetings from the forward edge of freedom’s frontier. On behalf of the Soldiers deployed to Afghanistan, I wish to thank you and the entire KOOL FM family for your continued support of America’s greatest heroes. Your support means more than words can ever express and show us that, no matter how far we are from home, you are always with us.
