brandonrstokesJohn Fitzgerald Kennedy was assassinated 50 years ago this Friday. Young and vigorous, the 35th President of the United States captured the imagination of millions of Americans with his vision of peace and a new frontier. "My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country." Half a century after those gunshots in Dallas, Texas, we remember those moments and the legacy of John F. Kennedy in a special commemoration Friday on KOAM Morning News.3w

brandonrstokesIt's Veterans Day, an official day to honor those who have served or are serving our country. The sacrifices our military heroes make impact not only themselves but their families and friends. Today is one day a year when we all honor the decisions they've made to defend our freedoms, but it's also a reminder to thank them for their service every day. Whether they're alive today, have passed on or were killed in action, they've all made the ultimate sacrifice to ensure our safety and stability as a nation. When tomorrow rolls around, do not take our veterans for granted. Remember, today may have the title of "Veterans Day," but every day should be labeled the same.4w
brandonrstokesTried to do a long exposure shot of the stars around the satellites at work at about 2:00 this morning, but Joplin is too close to the station. The light along the horizon is all emanating from Joplin. I guess if I want a better shot of the stars, I need to travel further out in the middle of nowhere.2mon
