Thank You, Veterans…and Spouses!

Today we take a moment to thank our veterans – those who have served and those who are currently serving – of all branches of the military.

Without them, we would not enjoy the freedoms we often take for granted on a daily basis. We live in the greatest country the world has ever known and one that must constantly be defended.

In our Auburn Network family, we are proud that two of our own are current military spouses. Account Executive Aubrey Stuart‘s husband is a Chief in the U.S. Navy while Wings 94.3 midday host Layla’s husband, Ricky, serves as a Major in the U.S. Army.

We celebrate and honor Aubrey and Layla, along with all military spouses, and all veterans past and present on this Veterans Day.

Thank you!
