Chris Emery spoke to Cane Ridge Elementary on Veterans' Day.
Men's Golf - Thu, Nov. 14, 2013
Monday was Veterans' Day. This is a time to take a moment to remember those who have fallen and fought to allow us at Georgetown College to enjoy the freedoms of faith, knowledge and the pursuit of dreams.
Tiger Nation is made up of many men and women who have served and one such honorable man again did service to his area community.
He goes about his business in an ordinary way, but Georgetown College students, staff and faculty all owe junior Chris Emery a thanks for his extraordinary ways. The Marine Corp Vet and Tiger golfer took a moment of his time once again to recall his three tours of duty in Iraq as a guest speaker Monday at Cane Ridge Elementary.
"What this young man has seen and done for our country, only few of us understand that," said Vietnam Veteran and GC golf coach Flash Williams. "It has been an honor to have him on our team the past few years."
Williams was also a guest at Collins Lane Elementary in Frankfort.
