William “Bill” Guess

William “Bill” Guess proudly served his country during the Korean War.  He served with the 8th Army 32nd Engineer.  Upon returning home, he settled for a time in Indiana with his wife Inez.  Later they made their way to Franklin County, Tennessee and made their home.  Together, they raised seven wonderful children.  When speaking with Ms. Inez, she recalls so many wonderful memories of her husband and the life they shared.  Last year, she was sure to personally place a wreath on his grave when a Wreaths Across America event was held at the cemetery in which he rests.  She honors his duty and their life together to this day.

I feel privileged to place a wreath on his grave each Christmas with the Wreaths Across America program. We will do our best to always remember him.

Korean War - Key Events

July 27, 1953

Mark W. Clark for the UN Command, Peng Dehuai for the Chinese, and Kim Il-Sung for North Korea conclude an armistice ending hostilities. A demilitarized zone is created that roughly follows the prewar border along the 38th parallel. South Korean Pres. Syngman Rhee announces his acceptance of the agreement, but no representative of South Korea ever signs the document.
