A library building in West Knoxville now bears the name of a Knoxville veteran.
Wednesday, county officials and family members dedicated the Sequoyah Library building in honor of Brigadier General Walter J. "Bud" Bacon, II.
Brigadier General Bacon was a veteran of the Korean and Vietnam wars, and received many awards for his service.
He also was heavily involved in veterans events in Knoxville, until his death in 2008.
Bacon's family says the library building tribute is a fitting one.
"I think that this is a good indication of the accomplishments he made over the years, and he loved to go into the library. He loved reading. So yes, this is probably the most important one that we've been involved in," said his daughter, Betsy Meadows.
The Knox County Commission approved a resolution naming the library after Bacon back in April.
