Tread lightly, 'tis a soldiers grave, A lonely, mossy mound; And yet to hearts like mine and thine, It should be holy ground. Speak softly, let no careless laugh, no idle, thoughtless jest, escape your lips where sweetly sleeps The hero in his rest. For him no reveille will beat when morning beams shall come; For him, at night, no tattoo rolls it's thunders from the drum. Tread lightly! For a man bequeathed, ere laid beneath this sod, His ashes to his native land, His gallant soul to God.

BRIDGE NAMED FOR GUARDSMAN WHO DIED IN WAR ON TERRORISM
Story taken from the Mirror-Exchange
Fifteen bridges along State Route 840 were dedicated Friday, Sept. 28, 2007, to soldiers of the Tennessee Army National Guard who have died in the war on terrorism.
Governer Phil Bredesen and Maj. Gen. Gus L. Hargett, Tennessee Adjutant General, attended a reception for families at the Lebanon National Guard Armory at 1010 Leeville Road in Lebanon.
State legislators earlier named State Route 840 the "Tennessee National Guard Parkway" to honor Tennessee
National Guard soldiers and airmen for their contributions in preserving America's freedoms in the war on terrorism. Earlier this year, legislators voted to name bridges and overpasses along the route for Guard members who died while deployed.
The bridge honoring Milan area Guardsman is the I-24 Bridge in Rutherford County, dedicated to Specialist James Dustin Carroll of McKenzie, who was a member of the Milan National Guard unit.
Special thanks to Vanessa Dicus for sponsoring Dusty's Find A Grave Memorial, and for providing several photographs which honor this fine young man.
