Servicemen honored

September 23, 2013

Four servicemen killed in a plane crash in the mountains of Pickens County in 1950 were honored with a remembrance service near where the plane went down. More than 70 people made the trek to Bully Mountain in the Franklin Gravely Wildlife Management Area of Jocassee Gorges to attend the service last Monday and to see a granite monument placed in honor of the fallen soldiers. Three family members of one of the crash victims attended the service. Two daughters of Sgt. Walter Lott made the trip from Pensacola, Florida. One of them, Anna Louise Agee, was 19 years old when her father was killed. She’s now 83.
