MISSING MAN TABLE

July 4. 2015

Photo by SK Bob Pelletier

The Missing Man Table, also known as the Fallen Comrade Table, is a semi-official place of honor in some dining facilities of the U.S. armed forces in memory of fallen, missing, or imprisoned military service-members. The table serves as the focal point of ceremonial remembrance, originally growing out of US concern of the Vietnam War POW/MIA issue Beyond permanent displays in dining facilities, the missing man table is traditionally part of military dining-in ceremonies and service balls. When presented in a dining-in or service ball, a narration given to the audience explains the symbolism of each item. 

The Missing Man Table will be set at every Assembly 3272 event.

FLAG FOLDING CEREMONY

GEORGETOWN MEMORIAL VETERANS WALL

 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 negotiated.
 Future plans and maintenance:
  - We are planning to purchase shrubs/trees and place benches along the memorial for a park like setting.
   - Replacement of all flags every six months or sooner if needed. 
   -  Yearly cleaning of all granite surfaces.
   -  Yearly insurance premium.
 The Georgetown County Veterans Memorial Board thanks the KofC Golf committee and all of those who have participated with their financial and moral support. We hope the Your sponsorship, effort, organization and participation will continue in future years.
