We often let you know about citizens receiving high honors. Today WTOC was on the receiving side. Quite a distinguished contingent from the Military Order of the Purple Heart Chapter 596, Savannah, presented their Meritorious Public Service Award to WTOC vice president and general manager Bill Cathcart.
Commander Jerry T. Walker also had words of praise for those Bill Cathcart leads.
"To WTOC, for the numerous activities they have done for veterans' organizations and keeping the military and also the community awareness of our soldiers overseas and our family members in harm's way back in the States," he said.
The Military Order of the Purple Heart is the only congressionally chartered veterans' organization exclusively for combat-wounded veterans.
