It did not take long for Kash Daniel to become a fan favorite. In his three years at the University of Kentucky, the middle linebacker has used his prominent platform to promote Eastern Kentucky and those who fight for our freedom in the armed forces.
As Memorial Day weekend kicks off the summer season, Daniel wants to remind the Big Blue Nation why we celebrate the occasion.
Ahead of the summer festivities, Kash met with members of Kentucky’s chapter of the Rolling Thunder, an organization dedicated to helping veterans and raising awareness for POW*MIA status service members. The two parties were first introduced when the Rolling Thunder set up Chairs of Honor around Kroger Field for the Cats’ duel with Georgia.
“Always a great time when my brothers and sisters from Rolling Thunder KY5 roll through Lexington. Just an unbelievable group of people who are veterans themselves spreading P.O.W. awareness,” Kash posted on Instagram.
“The stories I’ve heard from them really puts things in perspective, and makes the hard things in life seem not so hard anymore. This Memorial Day weekend please take a moment away from your BBQ’s and lake day laying in the sun to remember these men and women who gave their lives keeping us safe and allowing us to live life anyway we want to live it?? #NeverForgotten”
