A Salute to Veterans Past and Present
Saturday, November 9, 11 a.m., Library Main Gallery
Veterans and the Armed Forces have provided not just protection and defense but a unifying symbol for the nation. We appreciate the service and sacrifice of all of the men and women who have donned the military uniform, and this event is our way of expressing that appreciation. As such, the public is invited and encouraged to attend.
In addition to our salute to veterans, we will be launching two new publications from the Blount County Friends of the Library: Loyal Mountaineers: The Civil War Memoirs of Will McTeer and Vietnam Voices: Stories of East Tennesseans Who Served in Vietnam, 1965-1975 (vol. 1).
Reception to follow. Sponsored by the Blount County Friends of the Library in partnership with the Blount County Veterans Affairs Office.
