STRASBURG, Va. — Hundreds of Virginia police, firefighters and other public safety workers have fallen in the line of duty over the years, but the state always has lacked a memorial to them.
Now those who died may be about to have their sacrifices honored as early as this year, thanks to a fund-raising campaign launched by an organization headed by Hadden Culp of Woodstock.
