  1. Augusta is proudly a military town….we indeed need to continue doing more to honor our military including retirees. I had the honor of dining yesterday with a lady retired vet who was a bird colonel … she resides in Augusta. Thankfully we have many many historical monuments honoring our war dead….Augusta should take pride in our monuments and more need be erected.

  2. Yes Commissioner Clarke and myself had four of these signs installed back in October along Gordon Hwy. right before you get to gate 2 in both directions and the other two are placed near Jimmie Dyess Parkway. We are happy to see this this program has taken off showing thanks to our Fort Gordon families.
