The Memorial is constructed with eight
individual black granite stones recognizing those who made the supreme
sacrifice from the Revolutionary War through the War On Terror. The
Memorial includes a life size Bronze statue of a soldier in kneeling
position. The Monument is approx.. 90 feet in length, with the two center
stones approx.. nine feet in height. Each individual monument lists their
names in recognition, to honor and never forget what they done to help
establish the freedoms we now cherish.
Between each granite stone, a flag pole stands tall with the United States
flag leading followed by the SC State, The United States Army, Marine, Navy,
Air Force, Coast Guard and MIA flags. They are followed by the American
Legion and VFW flags. Beneath each flag pole are two LED subterranean lights
that display each flag during the hours of darkness. The last Granite stone
lists the names of sponsors, significant and individual contributors. It
also includes space for names of future contributors and donations.
On the opposite side of each granite stone is a historic and graphic
description of how those Wars and conflicts effected Georgetown and County
during those periods. The each history was written by local citizens and/or
family who are residents of Georgetown and County.
Our work continues. We need to finish and improve the Memorial site. Both
sides of the total monument, bricks will be laid and can be purchased and
inscribed to honor i.e. family member friend etc. for a donation of $100.00
dollars or more. Additionally, 26 black protective cast steel bollards will
form a barrier with protective white coated steel chain that will loop
between each bollard.
There is video surveillance around the memorial and insurance has been
Future plans and maintenance:
- We are planning to purchase shrubs/trees and place benches along the
memorial for a park like setting.
