A Call to Honor
During the week of January 15 – the 19th, the Exchange Club of Rome will host an exhibit honoring our military’s service to this country.
This year marks the 100th anniversary of America’s involvement in World War I and the 96th anniversary of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Memorial Day. Rome has the unique opportunity the week of January 15th of having the Rome Exchange Club’s Tomb of the Unknown replica, a 50% scale detailed replica of the one in Arlington National Cemetery,an extensive collection of World War I, World War II, Korean War, and Vietnam War uniforms from all branches of service, as well as thousands of military objects used by the soldiers, sailors, and airmen during those conflicts, all on display. We will also have the Georgia Wall of Honor remembering those who have given their lives for our freedoms in conflict that were from Georgia since 2003.
This display will be free of charge, although donations will be accepted, in the heated Community Building at the Coosa Valley Fairgrounds beginning Monday, January 15th through Friday January 19th from 10 a.m. until 7:30 p.m.
Parking is free and parking will be in the Fairgrounds using the back (Church Street) entrance to the fairgrounds.
