ROWAN COUNTY - A Rowan County community remembered a young Marine killed in Iraq and honored him Sunday with a new memorial.
A group of Eagle Scouts raised $10,000, then designed and landscaped a memorial for Lance Cpl. Nathan Elrod in Rockwell.
The community dedicated it with a 21-gun salute. Elrod was killed by a roadside bomb in Iraq in 2006. He was 20 years old.
