Dedicated To Our Veterans In Honor Of Their Service To Our Country: Lest We Forget!

Several military uniforms have been donated to the museum recently. Manikins wilt be purchased to properly display them. Memorial bricks are also being donated. The "Walk of Honor" is being expanded and we now have over 400 bricks purchased memory of or to honor a group, loved one or friend. The brick does not have to represent a veteran or an Oconee County resident. The cooler fall weather brings more visitors to the museum. There have been additional tour groups as well. Tours can be arranged for any time by calling board president Jon Busch at 864-638-8558.

Currently there are 123 listed on our membership list. If you have not renewed your membership recently, please see the link below.

The museum will be open for a few hours on Veterans Day...always on November 11...following the ceremony at the Walhalla Civic Auditorium. There is no better way to honor veterans than to learn their stories. The museum has many stories, equipment and other artifacts on display.

A Clemson student who is also a veteran has volunteered to help us continue the veteran interview program. If you are veteran, we're sure you have a story to tell about your experience. We want to encourage you to make an appointment by indicating on the form below.

Some things to consider before the interview are...the year you enlisted and the reasons why, What you enjoyed the most and least about serving, areas you were sent to, how long you served, what training you received and the friendships you made.

Shirley Hood donated her husband Hank Flood's Marine Corps dungaree herring bone work uniform to the museum. It is now displayed on a manikin. She recently brought her daughter, Marylou Flood, by to see it.

Members of the Foothills Garden Club of Clemson have planted pansies in the 3 dish gardens and mums in the 2 urns by the front door.

Fill out the membership form, print it and send it in.
