Gold Star monument getting Sullivan County funding
A project to honor the Gold Star families of our region is getting a boost from the Sullivan County commission.
Gold Star families are those who have had a loved one die while serving in the military.
Ground was broken for a monument in Kingsport last November and on Tuesday, the county commission voted to fund $10,000 of the $50,000 project.
The monument will be added to the Kingsport Veterans Memorial is scheduled to be finished in the fall.
