Soldier shares her life from the war zone

Editors note: Spc. Stacey Hawkins, a member of the Tennessee Army National Guard, is currently on duty in the Afghanistan theatre. Her first deployment to the war zone was with the Lebanon National Guard unit. She is now serving with a Nashville Guard unit. Originally from White House, Hawkins also lived in Lebanon. She submitted the article below to The Wilson Post last week.


Being a soldier was never something I thought about as a little girl.

I wanted to play with my Barbies, make the softball team, go to prom, senior vacation, and finally college. I was the typical small town girl from White House, Tennessee.

Im not too sure what made it so easy for me to make up my mind, but when I decided I wanted it, I wanted it. I needed to be a soldier. When I was 19, I made the decision to join the Army National Guard and shipped out to basic training at Ft. Leonardwood, Missouri and later trained to become a member of the Military Police (MP), also something I never saw myself doing, law enforcement.

Squires want less intrusion from state

The Wilson Post

Wilson County Commission passed a resolution Monday night opposing legislation at the state level that would limit the local government from making its own decisions on what they feel is best for the county.

District 13 Commissioner Clint Thomas proposed the resolution, providing it to the commission last month. Thomas said the state legislature has proposed and passed numerous bills that limit the countys authority over local issues.

I think we can run Wilson County better than the people in Nashville, said District 14 Commissioner Jeff Joines, who agreed with Thomas resolution.

The resolution passed 22 to 1 with District 11 Commissioner Jim Bradshaw abstaining. District 16 Commissioner Jason Brockman and District 24 Commissioner Paul Abercrombie were absent.
