White Crosses Symbolize Fallen U.S. Soldiers

By  | 

In honor of the 4th anniversary of the Iraq War, a local group has erected white crosses at Lincoln Park in Grand Junction.

It is the 3rd year A Voice of Reason has set up the crosses; each represents one American Service Member who has died during combat in Iraq. In 2004 there were 574 crosses. Today, 3,226 crosses are displayed. The group also hosted a rally and march to express their feeling about the war in Iraq.
