Welcome Home to newly chartered Chapter 1128 in Springfield, TN.
Barry Rice, the Tennessee State Council president, presented the chapter its VVA Charter after having hosted an organizing meeting in December 2016.
“When the Traveling Wall was up, I met quite a number of Vietnam vets, and a number of them asked if they could have a chapter in Robertson County,” Rice said. “And I said that I’d be more than tickled.”
Robertson County Mayor Howard Bradley spoke at the Charter ceremony, telling the new chapter members: “With my office in the courthouse, every day I walk by a monument of the fourteen Robertson Countians who did not come home. I think about them every day, and I think about you and the sacrifices that you made.”
