SALE CREEK, TN (WRCB) -- A Rhea county soldier is getting a lot of support.  Those who know Private Teddy Wilson call him a hero.

Wilson was seriously injured in Afghanistan last week.

His aunt tells us, one little gesture could make all the difference. Not just to lift Wilson's spirits, but to let all of our troops see how much they mean.

Channel 3 Eyewitness News photojournalist Lee Broome made a visit to Sale Creek to tell their story.
