Exhibit focuses on lives of 2 Tennessee veterans

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Just in time for Veterans Day, the Tennessee State Library and Archives opens new exhibits telling the story of the Korean and Vietnam wars through the eyes of two Tennessee veterans.

The exhibits will open on Friday in the lobby of the TSLA building in downtown Nashville. Speakers include Secretary of State Tre Hargett, State Librarian and Archivist Chuck Sherrill and Veterans Affairs Commissioner Many-Bears Grinder.

The exhibits include war time photographs, correspondence, documents and artifacts provided by the two veterans -- David Brock, who served in the Korean War and Christopher Ammons, who served in the Vietnam War.

The exhibits are free and open to the public.
