Clairfield, Claiborne County (WVLT) - An East Tennessee organization who provides medallions to families of fallen military members say they can not longer afford to do so.
The Fallen Friend Corporation will limit the medallions to honor only those from Campbell and Anderson counties who have paid the ultimate price.
So far, only Wal-Mart in Campbell County and Fox Toyota in Anderson County have pledged their financial support.
Fallen Friend has issued about 31,000 medallions since the program started 11 years ago.
"Our hearts goes out to these people and as long as I have breath in me, I will send what I can from people that will donate to this program here,” says Bob Parker, president of the Fallen Friend Corporation.
