Sue Peney, affectionately referred to as "Moma," lost her only child on June 1, 2010, to the Global War on Terror. For his selfless act of valor on the day he lost his life in 2010, Moma's son, Army Ranger, Sgt. Jonathan "Doc" Peney was awarded the Silver Star.
"Moma" Sue Peney attended the first Kentucky Veterans of the Year banquet in 2014. She loved the banquet and the message the Kentucky Veterans of the Year conveys. Presented with the knowledge that some veterans may not be able to attend the banquet and feel the sense of pride in being a veteran because they just can't afford the ticket price, Sue worked with the Kentucky Veterans of the Year to establish this "Veterans' Grant Ticket Fund" in honor of her only son, Army Ranger Medic, Sgt. Jonathan "Doc" Peney.
We hope you will join "Moma" Sue in honoring her heroic son by purchasing a ticket or tickets to the banquet that may be given to a veteran who could not otherwise attend due to limited financial resources. Will you honor this heroic Army Ranger Medic and his still devoted loving mom by purchasing a ticket to give away to a veteran?
