After the recent tragedy involving the USS Fitzgerald, WPER/Fredericksburg (Your PER) listeners sent an overwhelming number of cards and notes of support to encourage sailors currently stationed on-board the Navy ship. This grassroots response was started after a listener and former USS Fitzgerald service member, Steven Day, suggested the Your PER family do something in support of the Crew. Card stations were set up during the recent Kingsfest Concert at Kings Dominion in Doswell, VA. This enabled families to send personal messages of gratitude and comfort to sailors and their families currently serving.
