Central Kentucky Veterans Committee adds new members

From staff reports

During last month’s meeting of the Central Kentucky Veterans Committee, five new members were elected to serve on the committee staff.  The new members are Col. DeWayne Brewer (U.S. Army ret.), of Jessamine County; CWO3 Denny Hart (U.S. Army ret.), of Fayette County; SSG Donald Thornton, Jr.(U.S. Army ret.), of Jessamine County; Corporal Matthew Bradford (U.S. Marine Corps ret.), of Jessamine County; and Amanda Bradford, of Jessamine County. 

The CKVC annually organizes and conducts the Memorial Day and Veterans Day ceremonies at Camp Nelson National Cemetery.

“We are very excited about adding these new members, as well as their skills and experiences into the committee’s activities supporting our nation’s veterans,” said Committee Chairman Nick McManus in a prepared statement. 

The Central Kentucky Veterans Committee is a team of dedicated committee members from all walks of life and many different talents. The CKVCs mission is to honor our fallen and living veterans, as well as their families with ceremonies recognizing their military service.

The CKVC has volunteers from local businesses, community and military/veterans organizations to assist in each mission. The volunteers time and talents are critical to the success of each event at Camp Nelson.
