I used to hunt, jeep and backpack in that area of 10EC. Back in the mid 80's I got to visit the Big House with a locksmith friend of mine. Never again after that. It sets at the bottom of a horseshoe shaped mountain range i.e. Frozen Head State Park if you are ever in the area, stop by. James Earl Ray ran up it, hound doggies on his tail. And that he was still crawling away when they finally caught him!
I will/can check and see if I can any info about the guards next time I am downstairs! The way I understand, Frank just made stuff with these saying on it. The only one I recall other that club knives was some for the Tennessee Highway Patrol and the Invisible Empire knife.
I was in the Army with a guy from Newport who was a guard there after the service. I ain't seen him in years, but it caused him to drink alot and I mean he was in a Detox Unit last I seen him. Man, he said it was hard on him
