KINGSPORT, Tenn. - A local employer is honoring their veterans by bringing their stories to life to visitors.
Eastman Chemical Company dedicated a new honor wall for veterans Wednesday.
The wall showcases 55 Eastman veterans. It even includes some of their photos, flags, and medals, but at the center of the display is an interactive touch-screen that gives you an inside look into who these Eastman veterans are and what they've done for our country.
"They can actually experience what these employees went through in their deployments and how Eastman treated them while they were deployed and how they treated their families," said Cheryl Harvey with Eastman community relations.
The honor wall is found inside Eastman's Toy F. Reid Employee Center.
We're told more veterans' stories are in the process of being included in the display.
