Public news and announcements are brought to you by the Horry County Public Information Office.
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.
The veteran of the month for October is US Army Specialist Sean Thompson. Mr. Thompson served with the 10th Mountain Division in Bosnia, Kosovo, and Korea. He received an Army Commendation, Good Conduct Medal, Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, Army Achievement Medal, and a NATO Medal. Sean enjoyed going to Bosnia because the people appreciated what was done for them since he was part of a peacekeeping operation.
