We encourage everyone to be mindful of the work zones affecting the roadways. The traffic control devices are there for the safety of the residents, visitors, and road crews.

Horry’s Heroes: August Hero Is Theodore H. Voghel, Jr.

Conway, South Carolina – In an effort to recognize the many United States military veterans in Horry County, the Horry County Veteran’s Affairs Office has a monthly recognition program entitled “Horry’s Heroes” in which a veteran will be featured on the County’s social media platforms each month.

All honorably discharged veterans (active duty, reserve, retired and/or deceased) from 1900 to present are eligible to be featured. All that is needed is a picture and basic information.

The veteran of the month for August is Theodore H. Voghel, Jr. who served as a sergeant with the United States Army in Japan and Korea. Mr. Voghel served during the Korean War and received several medals for his service including two Bronze Service Stars! Theodore enjoyed serving overseas and settled in Horry County 25-years ago after his retirement. For five years, he helped his fellow veterans by driving them to the VA Hospital in Charleston.

For more information or to feature a Hero, contact the Horry County Veteran’s Affairs Office at (843) 915-5480.
