Paris, Tenn.- Thousands of people from all over came to Paris to visit the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall over the Labor Day weekend. On Monday, hundreds of people came out to the Moving Wall's closing ceremony as everyone at the event came to honor and remember those who gave their lives for our freedom in order to protect our country.

Speaker Bobby Nolan, the Veterans Service Officer at the Henry County Courthouse, said, “There are two things I want to leave you with today. Think about your freedom and think about the servicemen and women who gave their lives for our freedom and the second is an understanding that we’re not taking what they fought for granted.”

Nolan went on to say that we have freedom in this country: the freedom of speech, religion and we have freedom beyond freedom, which is something many countries cannot say.

The closing ceremony started with the Posting of the Colors presented by the Tennessee State Guard. The closing prayer was given by Randy Odom of the American Legion Post 89. The Soldier’s Cross also called the Battlefield Cross was performed by Veterans Honor Guard Art Henley. The Soldier’s Cross consists of the rifle, boots, dog tags and the helmet to honor those who died in battle.

The Soldier’s Cross began with the rifle being thrust into the ground to remember and honor  those who died on the battlefield. The boots are then placed at the bottom of the rifle to remind us of their final march into the soldier’s last battle. The dog tags are hung from the rifle so that the name of the soldier will never be forgotten.

Thetford Exhibition and Reception at Dixie Ballroom Gallery is Sept. 16th

Huntingdon, Tenn.- The Dixie Ballroom Gallery will be holding the Daryl Thetford Art Exhibition and Reception on Saturday, September 16th at 7pm. The event is free and open to the public.

Thetford grew up on a hundred-acre farm just down the road in Bradford, Tennessee. His father was a forklift operator who worked in a warehouse, and his mother was a beautician. While they encouraged their son to pursue so-called “practical” avenues of work, they also recognized his early artistic abilities, and enrolled him in oil painting lessons–which he loved–at age nine.

Thetford is an artist working in photography-based digital media and collage. His work has been described as graphic, modern, pop, and contemporary, although what to actually call the process has been a larger source of debate. Thetford’s work has been called photo collage, digital art, and digital mixed media.

FirstBank and the Arts Company in Nashville are sponsoring the event.
