"The Johnny Cash Freedom Train" will honor all American veterans but especially the men and women who served in Southeast Asia, Westmoreland said. Profits from the sale of tickets will be donated to veteran groups or causes supported by them. Events are scheduled for Memphis, Tenn.; Birmingham, Ala.; Atlanta; Knoxville, Tenn.; Lexington, Ky.; Cincinnati, Charleston, S.C.; Richmond, Va.; Washington and Baltimore. The tour will leave Memphis on May 30 and end in Baltimore on Flag Day, June 14.
