Kentucky – June 29, 2015
The teams journey to Kentucky included a visit to Studio 300 where U.S. Marine Veteran Tony Davis shared his artistry with the team along with placing his own hand on the canvas. Flag For Hope found plenty of fans outside of his studio in the historic Bourbon distillery district. Also in Lexington, artist Marcos Antonio and Flag For Hope Community Manager, Darcy Cook, shared the Flag For Hope story on LIVE television on the midday news for WKYT – TV. Outside the studio we met Kentucky Department of Veterans Affairs Commissioner, and Miss America 2000, Heather French Henry. Thanks to a tip from her, we visited the Conference for Disabled American Veterans in Lexington. More than 40 proud men and women serving from all of our armed services participated in the Flag For Hope Event. Our oldest participant was 86.
