SPRING HILL, Tenn. (AP) -- City officials in Spring Hill, Tenn., have deferred a request to include honoring fallen soldiers in a banner display.
According to The Daily Herald (http://bit.ly/Jru2Do ), the Board of Mayor and Alderman decided it was too soon to change the banners hanging in the town. The banner program was approved last December.
The banners recognize active duty military service members but not those who have died.
The vote was 5-4 to defer the request for the time being, keeping the program as it is now.
The change was requested by Tristan Baker, whose father died in Iraq in 2003.
Spring Hill, 30 miles south of Nashville, is the former site of the Saturn production plant. It has a population of 29,000.
