Kevin Carroll is here with your P.M. Update, looking ahead to a Sunday edition filled with emotion, pride and patriotism: Father’s Day is commemorated in several ways, including the story of two Eagle Scout candidates who worked with their fathers to create projects that will serve others. We’ll also tell you about Juneteenth, Wreaths Across America and more.
