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).
The veteran of the month for July 2019 is US Navy Culinary Specialist Third Class Nick Cosentino of Little River. Nick served in the Korean War, Europe and stateside. He loved serving aboard the ships he was stationed on. He volunteers with the Horry County Police and the American Legion so that he can help his fellow veterans.
For more information or to feature a hero, contact the Horry County Veteran’s Affairs Office at (843) 915-5480.

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.
