The McNairy County Veterans Affairs Office is looking to honor the county's veterans. 
Veterans Affairs Officer Amanda Fisher initially wanted to display the names with gold letters on wooden plaques.
“There are about 30 pages of names,” she said. “Even to list the veterans of World War II would not be feasible.”
Fisher asked the McNairy County Commission for permission to look into placing a digital display outside the veterans affairs office. The display screen would cost around $2,000. The digital display could also show pictures.
“We want these veterans to know they are appreciated,” Fisher said. “If a visitor comes to the courthouse, they can look at it and thank them for their service.
“If the county can't fund it, I would try a fundraiser and have the display outside my office, if we get their approval.”
According to a 2015-16 estimate by the Tennessee Department of Veterans Services, there are 2,776 veterans living in McNairy County.
