Dunlap, Tennessee always gives it’s veterans the utmost respect but this year was extra special because of the new memorial. Pictures are worth a thousand words so here are a couple million. No words necessary.
October 8th, 1938 President Eisenhower issued the first “Veterans Day Proclamation” which stated: “In order to insure proper and widespread observance of this anniversary, all veterans, all veterans’ organizations, and the entire citizenry will wish to join hands in the common purpose. Toward this end, I am designating the Administrator of Veterans’ Affairs as Chairman of a Veterans Day National Committee, which shall include such other persons as the Chairman may select, and which will coordinate at the national level necessary planning for the observance. I am also requesting the heads of all departments and agencies of the Executive branch of the Government to assist the National Committee in every way possible.” ~ Dept of Veterans Affairs

The title of Mr. Hatcher’s newest work is “Parable’s and People.” His book consists of 185 short stories. They begin with a farm boy’s memories of Williamson County, Tennessee during the 1940’s and 1950’s. They conclude with stories of people and places in the Sequatchie Valley. Each Narrative is limited to one page and emphasizes a spiritual and moral truth. They are based on real life experiences that readers will find entertaining and inspiring.
