Liberty State annual Veterans breakfast upcoming

Liberty State Bank will hold its annual Veterans Breakfast to honor local veterans Wednesday, Nov. 9, at 8 a.m. at the James E. Ward Ag Center’s East-West Building.

Wilson County Sheriff Robert Bryan will be this year’s keynote speaker. The breakfast will start at 8 a.m. with the program to follow afterward.

Cumberland University president Paul Stumb was the event’s speaker last year and his speech featured three stories relative to technology and the military.

Stumb said technology is transforming military personal and work lives as technology changes rapidly. He said the changes also bring changes to perceived threats to the country.

“As we think about the threats that face us a nation today, technological and cyber attacks are at the top of everyone’s list,” he said. “Are tanks and fighter jets, missiles, aircraft carriers, submarines and men and women who carry rifles still important to our military? Absolutely. But equally important are the computer programmers, mathematicians, network engineers –the information warfare specialists.”

Veterans are asked to RSVP by calling 615-449-4441 or 615-444-4166.
