Welcome to Moultrie, Georgia
WWII Monument in Moultrie

Moultrie's World War II Monument:  Mr. Gene Vereen and Mr. Hinton Reeves, both World War II decorated veterans had the idea not too long ago of having a World War II Monument in Moultrie at the new 5 million dollar Courthouse Annex.

Monument in Tallahassee

Mr. Vereen and Mr. Reeves, along with representitives of the Colquitt County Commission, visited well-known sculpture W. Stanley "Sandy" Proctor in Tallahassee, Florida.  The Colquitt County Commission later commissioned Mr. Proctor to reproduce his sculpture of his uncle, Julian Proctor. 

Mr Julian Proctor

Mr. Vereen and Mr. Reeves secured permission from Mr. Tom Brokaw, author of The Greatest Generation, to have a bronze copy of his book placed beside the statue of Mr. Proctor - representing World War II veterans.  Mr. Brokaw graciously gave his permission.

The model, Julian Proctor, owned for many years, Proctor Motors in Tallahassee, Florida - the Cadillac dealership.  His nephew is the sculptor, W. Stanley Proctor.

The dedication ceremony is set for 25 May 2003.
