Tennessee State Library and Archives Launches New Initiatives to Honor Korean and Vietnam War Veterans
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.
Nashville, 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.
“My father is a Korean War veteran, and I had numerous relatives who both served and died as a result of their service in the VietNam War, so this initiative is particularly meaningful to me, said State Rep. Joe Pitts (D-Clarksville). “I look forward to the completion of the project and the preservation of this important era in our country’s history.” «Read the rest of this article»

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.
