This Veterans Day, the Tennessee State Library and Archives (TSLA) launched a pair of projects aimed at preserving the history of those who served in the Vietnam and Korean Wars.

The Seal of the State of TennesseeNashville, TN – TSLA is asking veterans of the Vietnam and Korean Wars and their families to contribute items for a new archival collection called Tennessee Remembers: Vietnam and Korea Veterans. TSLA will accept all forms of original material including books, photographs, film, audiotapes, slides, negatives, artifacts, maps and letters. Professional archivists will arrange, organize and preserve the collections to ensure that donated materials are available to the public for research.

Austin Peay vs. Oral Roberts
November 19th, 2011 | Mabee Center |Tulsa, OK

Austin Peay State University GovernorsTulsa, OK – When you look at the Oral Roberts lineup, it looks much like the team that played Austin Peay in Clarksville two years ago in a BracketBuster contest.

Owning those talented, but familiar faces are the reasons why Oral Roberts is the overwhelming favorite to win the Summit League in 2011-12. The Golden Eagles are led by burly forward duo of 6-6 Dominique Morrison (19 ppg), a two-time first team All-Summit performer, and 6-5 Michael Craion (13 ppg), the Summit League Newcomer of the Year in 2009-10 before missing last season. Warren Niles, a 6-5 guard, was a handful for the Govs two seasons ago and he is off to a flying start this season.

A decade later those same words would resonate throughout the Winter Garden Hall in Two World Financial Center near Ground Zero as Vice President Joseph Biden, standing before the Ground Zero flag, spoke to the audience assembled for the dedication of a larger than life bronze statue depicting those same Green Berets.
