Terry Ward’s memorabilia from Vietnam War service are displayed in his Roane County home.
To honor the FALLEN

Terry Ward will see the names of the fallen comrades he knew from his stint in Vietnam when he joins other veterans on the Honor Air flight to Washington, D.C., in August.

Each year Honor Air takes East Tennessee veterans to visit the memorials in honor of their sacrifice.

“I wanted to do it since they started doing them and I heard about it,” said Ward.

“I had a good buddy of mine I went to school with whose name is on there. He was killed his first day in Vietnam.”

That man was Richard Patterson.
