North Carolina XI

About 60 miles east north east of Raleigh, just off Rte. 95 is Rocky Mount, North Carolina.

This small memorial sits in a small plot of land created by the intersection of three roads: Beale and Bryant Streets and Sunset Avenue.

The memorial bears no names, simply a dedication to all that were lost from Nash County. The thirty three lost include 16 from Rocky Mount.

It stands its watch adjacent to the City Lake.

This is one of two memorials from Rocky Mount and the  other will be featured some time in the not too distant future.

Next time, on the 4th of July, I hope to have a very special post about a guy from my VVA (Vietnam Veterans of America) group who has made a sculpture/painting  honoring those from VVA 641 who care for The Wall every month.

So, take a moment out from the hot dogs, beer and fireworks to check it out on the 4th. It will post, as always, at 9:00am.
