LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - This weekend, KTRE-TV will celebrate 60 years of being on the air in the Pineywoods.
We've selected 4 winners for our '60th Anniversary Giveway', one of which is the Disabled American Veterans Department of Texas.
The organization is dedicated to a single purpose, building better lives for all of our nation's disabled veterans and their families.
"There's a lot of people that haven't heard of D.A.V. I've walked through with D.A.V. on my shirt and they go 'what's DAV?'. And I'm like it's not DAV, it's Disabled American Veterans, so it's to educate the public that we are here and we're here to help," said Teresa Johniken.
Of course, this is all leading up to our 60th birthday party on August 29th from 11 am - 3pm at KTRE Studios off Highway 69 on 358 TV Road.
