An Early County veteran's memorial is in the early planning stages.

The American Legion is planning a Veterans Memorial Park.

It will be located next to the Highway 27 Bypass, where it goes back into Highway 27 south of town.

The legion's compiling a legitimate list of Early County vets who lost their lives, as well as those who served during all of the wars.

To contribute contact Kenneth Hall. or call 229-723-6646.

"A lot of the freedoms we enjoy today are because people gave their lives many years ago. From the revolution all the way through the present problems that we're having in Iraq and Afghanistan and other areas. So we want to make sure that people in our community realize the importance that they played in protecting those freedoms," American Legion Post 11 Commander, Kenneth Hall said.

Once the list is complete, they'll begin work on the project's cost and plans for the memorial.
