They are numerous enough to notice, infrequent enough to startle at seeing, and; they stimulate reverence, sorrow, sympathy, curiosity, and caution.
They affect us all to one degree or another. They are the white crosses that mark the sites of fatal traffic accidents along the highways of Montana.
For over 60 years, these white crosses have reminded passing motorist of the dangers of the road, as well as the lives, that have been lost on these highways.
One of the tenants of the American Legion is SERVICE. The Montana American Legion places markers beside the road in the location of a fatality as a SAFETY reminder, not as a memorial.
