A local committee is beginning work to raise more than $140,000 to create a memorial to honor the service of all those who have volunteered to serve in the National Guard unit based in Carrollton.
Committee chairman Command Sgt. Major (Ret.) Jimmy Supplee outlined the project Tuesday for the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce membership. Carroll County Judge-Executive Harold “Shorty” Tomlinson, also a committee member, shared the plans and a large architectural drawing of the memorial with fiscal court at its meeting Tuesday morning.
