The Letcher County Veterans Memorial Museum has a new solid bronze statue on display. The Fallen Soldier Battle Cross is symbolic of a cross on a battlefield in honor of a soldier who died in combat. The $5,000 statue was ordered two years ago by the Letcher County Tourism Commission and the Letcher Fiscal Court. Appalachian Monument Company placed the statue on the granite base. “It’s just to pay respect to fallen comrades in the area to let their families know that we do care,” said Darrell Holbrook, secretary of the Letcher County Veterans Memorial Museum.
