Saturday marked the nine year anniversary of 9/11. To honor the Guardsmen that have been deployed in response to 9/11, a ceremony was held on Saturday the 11th at the TN Air National Guard base in Memphis. Bryant received this "Hometown Heroes" medal along with a framed letter of recognition from the Director of the Air National Guard. The quote on the inside is from George W. Bush from October 7, 2001, "We will not waver, we will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail. Peace and Freedom will prevail."
