BULLARD (KYTX) - An east Texas world world two veteran now has his name and face on a bottle of Kiepersol bourbon. James Hines was a Navy pilot. Saturday he signed bottles of the special brew. The design of the bottle features the signature aviator glasses pilots were known for wearing.
He says it's always a great privileged to be recognized for his service, but now his name and service can be shared with many more.
"I was proud of my organization being a torpedo bomber pilot and he had that inscribed on the bottle made me think that it gives me or my organization even more notice and i'm proud of that."
The bourbon can be sampled and bought at the Kiepersol Vineyards in Bullard.
