The story goes like this:  

 This plaque which lists the names of 692 Rayon employees (see below) who served our country during WWII at one time hung in the entrance area to Rayon (now Reemay®).  At some point, and it is still unclear when, the plaque was moved to the Cumberland Building.     In the late 1990s, the plaque was taken down and put into storage.  The next time the plaque was seen was in the back of a truck on the way to the dumpster.  Thankfully, the plaque was rescued by several employees.   The plaque found a new home in 2005 in Old Hickory Veterans Memorial Park (see .  Below are the names of all 692 Rayon employees who served, bios of those who died, and a listing of those who were awarded medals.
