Saluting Service

107.9 The Link is joining forces with the Travis Manion Foundation in their mission to help veterans and families of the fallen successfully transition to the next step in their journeys.

On April 29, 2007, Travis Manion was killed by an enemy sniper while saving his wounded teammates. Today, Travis Manion Foundation exists to carry on the legacy of character, service and leadership embodied by Travis and all those who have served and continue to serve our nation.

Travis' words before leaving for his final deployment to Iraq "If Not Me, Then Who..." are a constant reminder for all of us to live with character and put other people's interests before our own.

With "Saluting Service," 107.9 The Link celebrates the men and women of our military who inspire us with their service, dedication and character.
