Description of Memorial:
I discover this small memorial while I was visiting the historic section of Rockmart. There is an eternal flame located on the top of a small brick structure. The flame is unique in that it is not an open flame as most I have seen are. The area is nicely landscaped, with rose bushes in front and the US Flag flying over the memorial.
