Blue Star Memorial Marker
I can't tell you how many times I've passed by this sign just off the road at Park and Cherry at the Memphis Botanic Gardens entrance. I've wondered what it was all this time and finally pulled over and went to check it out. This is a pretty little garden with a bit of paved walkway. "The marker sits in the midst of a specially-designed garden bed, stylized to represent the stars and stripes of the American flag."
Blue Star Memorial markers are placed in honor of the armed forces of our nation. The Commercial Appeal says there are 15 of these markers in West Tennessee.
