Jimmy Rickman Makes $30,000 Gift to Discovery Park of America

Donation will Fund Improvements to War Remembrances Theater

Union City, Tenn. — Discovery Park of America has announced a $30,000 gift from Jimmy Rickman of Murray, Ky . to support improvements to the museum’s War Remembrances Theater.

The theater, located in the military gallery, features a video presentation of local residents sharing first-hand, wartime stories about their military service. Included are local veterans who served in World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War.

“Discovery Park of America provides an incredible opportunity to make certain the stories of our local veterans are shared with future generations,” said Rickman. “As a veteran myself, I think this is such an important part of the work they do that I wanted to make a contribution to making certain that area of the museum is everything it can be.”
