I always get such a good feeling in my heart from participating in these special events. It is really quite an honor and the gratitude of the family is often overwhelming.
This time it was a priviledge to stand in honor of another of Tennessee’s Heros. Virgil Shelton, of Clinton , Tennessee , died on Monday, August 10, 2009 at his home. Mr. Shelton proudly served in the United States Army from September 14, 1965 to August 30, 1967. He served with the 7th Calvary, Armored Division, Troop C.
Mr. Shelton was also an avid motorcycle rider.
Thank you, Mr. Virgil Shelton, for your service to our country. You have our gratitude and our respect.
