Horry’s Heroes: Shirl Willard Hero of the Month for April

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 begun 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 (form attached).

The veteran of the month for April 2019 is Army Specialist Shirl F. Willard of Horry County. Having previously served in Powidz, Poland, Shirl is currently stationed in Georgia. She is a recipient of the Army Achievement Medal and believes that the US Army was a moving force in teaching her discipline and helping her achieve her goals. She made lifelong friendships with a diverse group of individuals and values the comradery and fellowship.

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

Horry County Fire Rescue First Annual Cup of Joe Event

Conway, South Carolina — Horry County Fire Rescue will host its first ever “Cup of Joe” program on this upcoming Veteran’s Day (November 11, 2013).  The purpose of this program is to reach out into our communities and invite prior service, retirees, and veterans to visit one of the nineteen participating fire stations within our county to meet our crews, share a cup of coffee, and build relationships.


Our staff is excited about this program and we believe it will built strength in our department and communities. Although we respect all those whom we are sworn to serve, what better way to show our appreciation to those in our community who have served our Nation in times of peace and war than to invite them into our buildings and honor them for their enlistment.
