Who was "Buck" Karnes?

Tennessee River at Alcoa Highway was named to honor J.E. “Buck” Karnes,
Sergeant James E. (Buck) Karnes was born on July 20, 1889 in Arlington, Tennessee and died on July 7, 1966. He was from Knoxville and served with the 117th Infantry, 30th Infantry Division in France. He is buried at Greenwood Cemetery in Knoxville.
In 1933, just 15 years after his actions on a World War I battlefield in France earned Karnes a Medal of Honor.
According to military records, on Oct. 8, 1918, Karnes, who was a sergeant, and Pvt. Calvin John Ward of Morristown were part of a company that was pinned down by a German machine gun position.
Together, Karnes and Ward attacked and eliminated the position, killed three Germans and captured seven. Each man was awarded the Medal of Honor. After the war Karnes served as a Knoxville police officer for several years. When a physical disability ended that career, he moved to Sacramento, Calif. He died there in 1966 two weeks shy of his 76th birthday. His body was returned to Knoxville for burial in Greenwood Cemetery with full military honors. #truehero #KnoxvilleTN #Sunday

Every day focus on your purpose. Remember why you do what you do. We don’t get burned out because of what we do. We get burned out because we forget why we do it. 278th/RHHT pre-convoy meeting at Tullahoma TN. #278thacr #warmachine #TNARNG @nationalguard #TN

Decision making is knowing if to decide, then when and what to decide. It includes understanding the conse- quence of decisions. Decisions are the means by which the commander translates his vision of the end state into action. #MDMP #278thacr
