The Sons of Confederate Veterans local camp 176 will meet Sunday at 2 p.m. at Obion County Museum on Edwards Street in Union City. All members are urged to attend, a spokesman said.
Ron Akin will present the story of his favorite soldier, his father, who served in the 9th Armored Division during World War II, seeing service with the 14th Tank Battalion during the Battle of the Bulge and the capture of the Remagen Bridge in Europe.
The SCV works in conjunction with other historical groups to preserve Confederate history. It is not affiliated with any other group. The SCV rejects any group whose actions tarnish or distort the image of the Confederate soldier or his reasons for fighting. For more information, visit the camp website at scvcamp176.org.
