The Third Memorial

That same square in Waycross, GA, had not one, not two, but three different memorials to their soldiers. This third one seems to be a catch-all for those from WWI, WWII, Korea and Vietnam, each one getting it's own side. There's an eternal flame burning in that lantern atop the monument, or at least I think that's what it's supposed to be. It didn't appear to be burning when I was there, or it was burning very faintly and I couldn't see it in the bright daylight. Perhaps it only burns on special occasions.

Here's the plaque from the base of the statue. It seems to imply that the flame should be burning...
