Son Of Veteran Passes Away


That headline would not normally draw your attention - unless you know it was the son of a Confederate Veteran. 

James Brown Sr., 99, of Tellico Village, one of the last real sons of a Confederate veteran, died Thursday afternoon in a Farragut nursing home, his son, James Brown, said Saturday afternoon.
As the great-great grandson of three Confederate Veterans, I think its important to acknowledge and honor one's fathers. Story here.
