The Goldston Veterans’ Memorial dedication took place on Memorial Day with approximately 800 people – including more than 300 veterans – in attendance.

The Goldston Veterans Memorial Committee raised $42,000 to erect the monument, which will continue to have names inscribed on it in the future.

Chatham County commissioner and former U.S. Navy Commander Mike Cross wore his dress whites to the ceremony.

The Rev. Sampson Buie, Jr., gave the invocation, and Lt. Col. Larry McCarty, chaplain at Fort Bragg, was the guest speaker.

J.S. Waters School teacher Henry Buckner sang “God Bless America.” Sandra Paglia and Nathan Street, Chatham Central High School choral director, sang “Let Freedom Ring.”
