The governor announced that he plans to call a special session to focus on the proposal after the 109th Tennessee General Assembly convenes in January.

Paynesville, Liberia – It’s a common story for many deployed Soldiers. The stress from their deployment causes problems with their marriages and other relationships, which distracts them from their job as a Soldier.
