About This Monument


This tribute is located in front of the Horry County Courthouse. It is made of polished and rough-hewn granite with a granite base.

Why This Monument Is Important


This monument immortalizes those those brave young men that gave their lives because our country asked them to. The Vietnam Veterans Monument is granite monument in a crescent shape with a low relief carving of a map of Vietnam. The map is inscribed: Vietnam Veterans of Horry County Acknowledge Our Fallen Comrades. This is followed with a list of names with dates of death for veterans. The list is continued on the back of monument. This monument honors those that died.

Advice


When you look at the list of fallen young Americans, say a prayer for those that came back alive and did not receive the admiration of their country for their service, in this conflict and those that have followed.
