In between barbecues and time at the pool, Romans have several opportunities to participate in ceremonies honoring those who served in the armed forces.
Maj. Gen. William Terry Nesbitt, former Adjutant General, Georgia National Guard, will be the guest speaker at a service in Shannon beginning at noon, according to Hartwell Nolan.
According to Nesbitt’s biography on the Georgia National Guard website, he is “an infantry officer with over 40 years of service which include service in the 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne) in the Republic of Vietnam and a number of command and staff positions including Chief of Staff, Headquarters, Georgia Army National Guard and Deputy Commander of the 48th Infantry Brigade.”
Nesbitt and his wife, Letha, have two adult children and two grandchildren. They are members of the Oostanaula Baptist Church of Calhoun where he serves as a deacon.
The annual service will be near the flagpole at 1 Memorial Drive.
“We hope to have a great crowd,” Nolan said.
