Kentucky Remembers is a time to Honor our Heroes.
Kentucky Remembers is a time when the entire community comes together for a singular purpose, to support our military, first responders, and their families for their service and sacrifice.
Kentucky Remembers combines the spirit of three National holidays and observances.
Armed Forces Day is held the third Saturday in May to honor those currently on active duty in the United States military.
Veterans Day is held on November 11th each year to honor our veterans who have served in the Armed Forces.
Memorial Day is held the last Saturday in May to honor and remember those who have died while on active duty paying the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.
History of Kentucky Remembers
The Mullins family hosted a faith based concert in 2012 to thank the Owensboro community for the outpouring of love and support after their middle son SPC Brandon Scott Mullins was killed in Afghanistan on August 25, 2011.
Since that time, the Mullins family has collaborated with local businesses, veterans service organizations, and hundreds of community volunteers in putting together six Veterans Day concerts and four Veterans Day 5K races.
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.
