“We Salute You” was an idea from former News 5 WCYB news director John Soares. In November, 2014, with Veterans Day on the horizon, he was looking for a way to honor veterans.

John created “We Salute You” to have people around the Tri-Cities region send in photos of their loved ones who served in the U.S. Armed Forces, and boy did they!

We got photos and stories from everywhere and aired the person’s picture, name, hometown, and a fact or two about them weeknights on News 5 WCYB at 6 and Fox Tri-Cities News at 10.
