To honor a War Hero is truly a gift we are given by our Country. Henry T. Elrod was a man who well represents the many who have given their life for their Country. He would have been so proud to see the towns of Ashburn and Rebecca honor him...but he also would have wanted to share the honors with his fellow servicemen and servicewomen. Thank you to those in Georgia who have not forgotten. From the Elrod family....God Bless...and thank you!

We in Turner County are truly honored to have such a great serviceman honored here?

Are you originally from this area? I see your last name is Williams. My grandfather was a Williams as is my grandmother. Just seeing if there was any kind of relation...
