Georgetown County veterans are being sought as nominees to receive Quilts of Valor during a ceremony in April. The deadline for nominations is March 1.

Quilts for the ceremony will be provided through the Quilts of Valor Foundation, which seeks to recognize "the service and sacrifice of those who are serving or have served in the Armed Forces to protect our freedoms." The quilts are hoped to bring comfort and healing.

Any service member or living veteran who served in any branch of the U.S. military and received an honorable or general discharge is eligible to receive a Quilt of Valor. Members of the activated National Guard and activated or active duty-special work (ADSW) reservists are included. The Army National Guard and Air Force National Guard are components of the Army and Air Force respectively. Merchant Marines activated from 1941-1945 are also eligible.  Additionally, anyone who served at the Dover Mortuary Facility is eligible.

Nominations should be submitted online and a copy of the nomination should be emailed (dmurphy@gtcounty.org) or faxed (843-545-3312) to the Georgetown County Veterans Services Office prior to March 1. Please make a note on your nomination form that the nomination is for the Myrtle Beach area #565.

If you have questions or would like more information, call the Georgetown County Veterans Services Office at 843-545-3330.
