Moleskin: Tennessee Volunteers
Let’s talk Tennessee history for a few minutes and understand the type of volunteers we have always had here in Tennessee. In April of 1861 the General Assembly passed an act allowing the Governor to raise 55,000 volunteers, 25,000 which should be armed and prepared for service immediately. Around the state men rapidly organized into companies and regiments. Throughout the Civil War, Tennesseans served and fought on both sides of the conflict. Over 120,000 Soldiers fought for the confederacy. More than 31,000 fought for the Union.
Tennesseans volunteer tradition would be on full display as America formally entered into World War One on April 6, 1917. All Tennessee units were federalized and almost all became part of the newly created 30th Infantry Division. They nicknamed the 30th “Old Hickory” in honor of Andrew Jackson. National Guard Soldiers in the 30th ID received 12 Medals of Honor (five were Tennessee Guardsmen), more than any other division.
During World War II the 30th Infantry division was mobilized again and most Tennessee troops were in the 117th. They received five presidential citations by war’s end, making it one of the most decorated Army infantry regiments in the United States.
Tennessee mobilized units for the Korean War, hundreds of Guardsmen volunteered to serve with the active Army during Vietnam, desert shield and desert storm, Afghanistan, and then Operation Iraqi Freedom that I deployed to twice.
Tennesseans have always demonstrated their volunteer spirit through their actions by deploying whenever and wherever they are needed. And many of these service men and women have made the ultimate sacrifice.
We are a great state and Nation because we have the will to fight, the desire for self-sacrifice, and dedication to our country. We hold tight our ideals of patriotism, respect for tradition, duty, honor, and our faith.
Take a Knee: Father, we first want to give you thanks for our savior your Son Jesus Christ so that we could be forgiven of our sins. We are trying to get better and to get right. Please use us in spreading your Grace both in our family and in the community. Here we are Father, send us. In Jesus name, Amen.
