New site holds info about vets

A new website provides information about Kentucky veterans’ events and even offers a place to send messages to people living in the state’s three veterans’ nursing homes.

The 11-11-11 site launched this month includes personal stories from Kentuckians who served in the military, and visitors can add events planned in their own communities to honor veterans.

The notes to the nursing home residents will be collected and delivered to the homes.

Veterans are encouraged to submit their own stories about their work in the armed forces for possible publication on the site.

Gov. Steve Beshear’s office says the website is part of his program to honor current and former members of the military leading up to Veterans Day this year.

The website is www.governor.ky.gov/11-11-11. (AP)
