JENNIE: Ashley Campbell’s new baby, WWII Veterans book, In Their Own Words


TELEVISION PARK (WJBF) – This show we’ve got for you, today– looking at the circle of life, really. On the backside, a tribute to the men and women who fought for this country in WWII, and on the front side…  the birth of a baby.. We’re visiting with WJBF’s newest mommy, Ashley Campbell and her beautiful baby, McKenna.

It was June 17th that NewsChannel 6 proudly shared the news that our Good Morning Augusta weekend anchor, Ashley Campbell, had given birth to a sweet little girl, McKenna Marie.

Ashley may not realize this now, but these long days and often sleepless nights are short-lived! Only when you watch your children grow up, do you experience how fast time flies.    

It’s a project to save the histories of the Greatest Generation: 147 veterans of World War II, all with Aiken and Augusta ties, recorded in a new book, In Their Own Words: Augusta and Aiken Area Veterans Remember World War II

Project Coordinator Fred Gehle and retired Augusta University professor, Dr. Jim Garvey, are here to talk about what was surely an intensive labor of love.

You can buy the book at the Augusta Richmond County Historical Society’s office at Augusta University, or simply go to their website,
