Kentucky Remembers is a time to Honor our Heroes when the entire community comes together for a singular purpose, to support our military and their families for their service and sacrifice.
A faith based concert was held in 2012 to thank the Owensboro community for the outpouring of love and support shown to the Mullins family after their middle son SPC Brandon Scott Mullins was killed in Afghanistan on August 25, 2011.
In 2016, the Mullins family established the Brandon Scott Mullins Memorial Foundation to honor the life and legacy of their son through leadership scholarships at Apollo High School and the Owensboro Hockey League. This foundation also serves as the catalyst to streamline the efforts in putting together signature projects throughout the year simply titled, Kentucky Remembers.
Collaborating with local businesses, veterans service organizations, and hundreds of community volunteers, Kentucky Remembers encompasses several special events including the annual 5K, concerts, and Military Ball along with others that support the military and veterans community.
