While chatting with Master Chief Petty Officer Marcus Hill, United States Navy/ Retired at the Beersheba Craft Fair in August, Sergeant Major (E-9) Larry E. Williams, US Army/ Retired learned that Hill had lost the Honor Flight ball cap he was given as a member of Honor Flight Middle Tennessee’s first flight in 2008.
Williams, the flight coordinator, mentioned the loss at the next Board of Directors’ is meeting, at which time board member Rob Moreland, US Army/ Veteran insisted on taking Hill’s replacement hat to him, along with the Manchester American Legion Honor Guard cyclists.
This action served to not only make a Grundy County hero happy, but also the cyclists from Tullahoma, Winchester, and Manchester, were able to honor Hill’s service.
Moreland reported that Hill was thrilled to get the hat.
“He was overjoyed that we came to present it to him,” said Moreland. “We talked a while and he showed us memorabilia from his service days. Still a ‘salty sailor.’”
