CUMBERLAND COUNTY'S KILLED IN ACTION IN THE VIETNAM WAR


Nine Cumberland County Natives Lost Their Lives In Vietnam.

Nine brave men left the comfort of their homes on the Cumberland Plateau at different stages of the war. Never thinking that they wouldn't return, but always had that in the back of their minds. Most of them were in their teens with a full life ahead. For their love of family and country they sacrificed everything. May the souls of these men and all who parished in this and all other wars rest in PEACE.

This page is to keep their memory alive.

On Tuesday, July 16, 2013 at 11:00AM Marine Sergeant Morgan Stader, a Crossville transplant, will have the new Daddy's Creek Bridge named in his honor. The Sergeant Strader Bridge is located on HWY 70 just a few miles west of Crab Orchard (a mile or two east of Crossville KOA camp ground). Sergeant Strader was killed in November 12, 2004 in Fallujah, Anbar province, Iraq. Strader was assigned to 3rd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division, I Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Pendleton, Calif.; killed Nov 12 2004 by enemy action. We would like to have participation to honor this hero. There was a great turn out for Sergeant Hancock at the Crossville Airport. Let's give this hero who gave the ultimate sacrafice a good turn out. There wasn't much fanfare when he came home due to the fact he was born in Indiana and the funeral was there. He was a graduate of Cumberland County High School.
