Metal Crosses Made To Honor War Dead In County


Last updated 10/28/2019 at 2:37pm

Eighty-two metal memorial crosses have been purchased by the Friends of Rosman. Each cross, with an American flag, represents a serviceman from Transylvania County who was killed while serving in a war, including WWI, WWII, Korean, Vietnam and the Global War on Terrorism. One cross also memorializes Larry Jamerson of Rosman who was Missing in Action.

These crosses were first displayed at Rosman’s recent “Heritage Day.” They were made possible by grants from the Transylvania County Tourism Development Authority, private donations and fundraiser monies from the Friends of Rosman.
