AM 1180 Chattooga County Radio has been broadcasting live on the internet 24 hours a day for a little over a year now, and recently we received word from a listener in Kuwait.  A Chattooga County resident serving in the 1343rd Chemical Company of the Army National Guard based out of Ft. Payne, Alabama keeps up with his hometown happenings courtesy of AM 1180.

Jason Gray is the son of Stanley and Debra Gray of Trion.  He is married to Alicia Gray of Summerville and has three daughters one son and one step daughter.  His children are Cheyenne Gray, Dakota Gray, Savanah Gray, Alexis Gray and Haley Peirce. 

This is Jason’s third deployment, and his last with the National Guard.  His mother told AM 1180 that her son has done other tours of duty, one in which he had a close call as his camp was attacked shortly before he shipped out for home.  He has served in the armed forces since 1997.  When Jason is not serving his country in the Army National Guard, he works for the Summerville Housing Authority.

Jason told AM 1180  "just wanted to say this is pretty cool that i am setting in Kuwait and have my hometown station streaming in on my laptop.  Thanks so much for a small peice of home, see ya soon."

AM 1180 has some of the best listeners in the world and we want to salute this Chattooga County resident and wish him the best as he serves his country.  God bless you and all the men and women with the 1343rd Chemical Company serving in Kuwait.
