Sergeant York Patriotic Foundation
March 1, 2011
The Sergeant York Patriotic Foundation is very important to Tennessee's future, as it is interwoven in Tennessee's historic and proud past. As a former Alvin C. York VAMC employee, I didn't know who Alvin C. York was. One day when roaming the halls of the Murfreesboro Campus, I was told by a veteran that I needed to watch the movie. When I did, it not only made me be proud to be an American, but proud to be from Tennessee. I have recently gone from the ranks of the unemployed to the employed, and plan on taking my grandchildren to Jamestown in the spring to tour the building and homeplace. There are so many places in the United States that have an important history and a legacy for Americans that are not being preserved. I think Sergeant York would be honored knowing that his legacy lives on. Not because of who he was, but because of what he was. A soldier who served his country with honor and courage.
