Star shape?

Filed under: Historic District, Markers, & Flags — lessie @ 2:41 am

I find the Anderson County Veterans Memorial to be simple and striking. I especially like the shape. A star? And the fact that the visitor walks through the monument to read the names of those from Anderson County who served during war time. A flag from each military branch flies around the U.S. and the S.C. state flags. Across from the POW / MIA flag is a marker dated 1972 with the names Robert S. Fant, Jr., Richard T. Simpson, POWs / MIAs from the Vietnam War.
