I’ve lived in Weakley County my entire life. All of it is beautiful, but to me the most beautiful place resides on the courthouse lawn at the War Memorial. I want to thank our Veterans for their service, the Veterans Affairs Office for taking care of our Veterans, and a special thanks to Ricky Cobb. The War Memorial looks better than ever this year.
As Memorial Day rounds the corner, I have a request to all family members, friends, and fellow Veterans who knew the heroes listed on the Weakley County War Memorial. Every year, I read their names, hear their names, but I know nothing about them. I want to change that and learn as much about their lives as anyone can possibly remember or knows. My address is 240 Jefferson St., Dresden, TN 38225, and I would be humbly honored to read any letter I receive. I’ve always been curious to learn about George W. Myrick, James A. Myrick, and Thomas E. Myrick who fought during World War II.
