Killian expresses pride and patriotism in farewell remarks

While addressing a sizable gathering Dec. 10 at Bessie Smith Cultural Center during a reception held in honor of his tenure as U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, Bill Killian said he will never forget the “pride and patriotism” he felt when he stood in court and said, “Your honor, Bill Killian on behalf of the United States of America.” - (Photo by David Laprad)

 “Five years ago, I underestimated the breadth and the depth of being a U.S. attorney. I was simply proud and honored to be elected. I leave this job with great respect for the Department of Justice, and satisfaction with what was achieved during my tenure. It has been my distinct honor and pleasure to serve the country we love.” - Bill Killian during his final remarks
