(WBIR - Pigeon Forge) A Pigeon Forge theater honored one of their own for his service in the Vietnam War.

Wes Herrick plays Pa Hatfield in the Hatfield and McCoy Dinner Show in Pigeon Forge. But 52 years ago, Herrick served as a crewman on a C-124 in Vietnam.

Friday night, in front of friends and family, Herrick was wrapped in a Quilt of Valor and awarded a plaque.

Herrick was overwhelmed by the gesture, but says we need to turn our attention to today's active duty service men and women.
