Nathan B Henry Bridge naming ceremony today

The bridge over US Highway 64 and US 441 which is the Atlanta exit in Franklin will be known as the Nathan B Henry Bridge after today. Henry was a POW in  Viet Nam from 1967 through 1973.  The Franklin native received serious injuries in combat actions in the Viet Nam war and was consequently captured.  One can Google Nathan B Henry and read a report of his service record.  Today’s ceremony will feature numerous local, state, and federal political leaders, members of the Viet Nam Veterans Chapter for Franklin, agents from other veterans organizations, and members of Henry’s family. Henry will give a response to the actions as part of the ceremony.  This honor will cap an effort by many local veterans groups and community leaders who value his service.
