Honoring our Veterans: May We Thank You on 97.5 Y-Country


We can never appreciate our veterans enough. In a world that often moves at a breakneck pace, it's crucial to pause and acknowledge the sacrifices made by our local veterans. These brave men and women have selflessly dedicated their lives to protecting our freedoms and ensuring our safety. Spearheaded by 97.5 Y-Country, May We Thank You aims to honor the local veterans of Southwest Michigan.

During the entire month of May, the dedicated team at 97.5 Y-Country connects with local veterans to amplify their stories on air, at and on social media to recognize the invaluable contributions of these men and women who have bravely served their country. May We Thank You not only serves as a token of gratitude, but also as an opportunity for Michigan's Great Southwest to come together and express their appreciation for their service.

97.5 Y-Country's Dolly Madison spoke with Tyler, a local veteran, to say thank you and to find out more about his time in the armed forces and what he's experienced after returning to civilian life as part of the 2023 May We Thank You Tour.


May We Thank You extends beyond the airwaves, as it successfully brought together individuals and local businesses all driven by a common goal: to show their support for veterans who have sacrificed so much. During May We Thank You, 88 area veterans visited the military Jeep in the showroom at Signature Dealer Group in Benton Harbor, added their names to the Roll Call board, and were also gifted a 3x5 ft. American flag, courtesy of Lazer Graphics. 

97.5 Y-Country and Signature Dealer Group presented May We Thank You 2023, which was proudly supported by Hartlines Garden Center, Lakeshore Public Schools, Starks Family Funeral Homes and Cremation Services, Black Arsenal, Hasse's Towing, Dairy Korner, Grapevine Nursery, St. Joe Monument Works and Adent's Landscape Supply.
