Sister station News-Talk 1480 WHBC presents a special two hour program that will spotlight the Stark County Veterans who have been inducted into the Ohio Military Hall of Fame for Valor since 2000.
The close to 400 members of the Hall of Fame are recognized servicemen and women from Ohio who were decorated for heroism while in combat situations.
Pam Cook and Joe Palmisano will take a look at the local veterans who have been honored in the past and hear from the honorees themselves or the family of those who have passed away.
It’s a Memorial Day tradition on 1480 WHBC as we honor our own.

WITH HONOR AND SACRIFICE (11am to Noon)
This Memorial Day, join Fox News for “With Honor And Sacrifice.” Hosted by Tonya J. Powers, we’ll examine some of the challenges our military members face upon returning home from active duty, and the ways our country is coming together to help our veterans and their families heal on the home front– and remember the fallen.
HOLDING DOWN THE HOME FRONT (Noon to 1:00pm)
“Holding Down The Home Front” is a tribute to women who are heroes in their own right, including one who has served her country with honor. We also hear from a wife and also a mother of men who have served in our military. These women run households, raise children, open businesses, and further educate themselves — while their loved ones are away. Lauren Simonetti, co-host of FOX Business Network’s 5am show FBN:AM, and host of a newly launched podcast, “We’re Momming Today!” shares the stories of these extraordinary women
