[ARCHIVED] Boot Memorial Honors Fallen Service Members

Combat boots surround the Craighead County Veterans Memorial

What a fabulous inaugural Boot Memorial today put on by the Elks Lodge.  It was a wonderful homage with 150 pairs of empty boots, paying tribute to the 700 soldiers from northeast and central Arkansas who have lost their lives in service to our country.  Mayor Copenhaver dusted off his vocal cords with a co-member of their old Men's Trio, Matt Sheets, to provide an elegant National Anthem.  
Our hearts and admiration are never more filled than when expressing love and compassion to those who have lost loved ones in military service.
