Wilson County has formally dedicated a memorial to all those who serve, at the new Veterans Park next to the Wilson County courthouse in Lebanon. CedarStone's John Bryan, chairman of the board of the Lebanon-Wilson County Chamber of Commerce, was present at the dedication. "It's great to see the community coming together to honor the men and women who serve in the armed forces of this country," said Bryan. "Freedom comes at a price, and we need to do all we can to pay tribute to those who secure our nation."
The park, which was over two years in the making, features a granite wall with the names of those from the county who gave their lives in service to the country, its five parts representing the five branches of the military. Read more about the park at The Lebanon Democrat: click here.
