Our little town has done a great job honoring our past. Some gave all. All gave some. This little, beautiful bridge will honor so many for a very long time. Way to go Gilmer County.

This memorial for veterans so proudly displays the appreciation for their service. We live here and have attended ceremonies and are in awe of the folks that make, maintain and preserve our fallen heroes. Quite a tribute for a small town.

I was walking the river walk with someone and we crossed the bridge because we have never done it. It's beautiful. The best part is the memorial to all who served from the Revolution War to Afghanistan. It has all branches of the services represented....More
