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.
