In ancient days a stately column or pillar was used to honor those persons of nobility and dignity who contributed much to the community or state. A broken column was used to honor those who died or were struck down and cut off in the vigor of life and indicated the great loss suffered by the community. With this broken column Breathitt County honors those noble and valiant sons she lost during the Korean War.
