It was three years ago today that my late son Sergeant Eddie Jeffers had his letter to me published by Frank Salvato at the New Media Journal.
A few local folks here in beautiful Northwest Florida, also known as the Emerald Coast, heard an interview I did with Ken Walsh of Cumulus Broadcasting and the host of WFTW’s Wakeup Call.
The interview was done for a show called Emerald Coast Conversations and if you missed it on any of the five Cumulus stations here locally, you can listen to it hear on my blog. We are talking about Sergeant Eddie Jeffers, my son whose life we will be celebrating at the 2nd Annual Hope Rides Alone Banquet in a couple of weeks.
Many thanks to Ken Walsh, aka “Grouchy” of “The Wake Up Call” at WFTW NewsTalk 1260 in Fort Walton Beach.
Yesterday was a significant day for the Jeffers’ Family and many of you played a large part in it. Ground was finally broke for the new Fisher House of the Emerald Coast on Eglin Air Force Base here in NW Florida. The wonderful and giving community here has already donated tens of thousands of dollars to support this wonderful charity. Nearly eight thousand dollars has been given in memory of Sergeant Eddie Jeffers. We are so grateful to all of you and know that our Fisher House here in the Florida Panhandle will be a home away from home for our precious military families.
Here is the groundbreaking site:
