APSU associate professor, service-learning students assist on project to honor area veterans

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Every veteran has a story, but not every veteran’s story is remembered by history.

For each acclaimed general or honored battlefield leader, there have been countless American men and women who sacrificed their time, bodies and lives to protect their country — only to see their unique stories go untold after they took off the uniform.

Dodging the Roadkill: The South Union Shaker Village

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyAuburn, KY – On a beautiful Saturday morning, I did what I so often LOVE to do.  Go get a fresh hot cup of coffee, then take an early morning ride somewhere.  The mornings are so peaceful and cool, with very little traffic.  It’s perfect! 

As I was watching the sun coming up, I was wondered which direction I would ride.  Then it hit me, that on my way back from Arkansas last week, I came through Kentucky, down highway 68/80.  I passed a familiar road sign to the “Shaker Museum.”  From Clarksville, it’s a beautiful ride, and as so many bikers have, I’ve passed it many times.

I thought today would be the day I would visit to learn more.
