Many people confuse the purpose of Veterans Day and Memorial Day. So what is the difference between the two?
Memorial Day honors service members who died in service to their country or as a result of injuries incurred during battle. Deceased veterans are also remembered on Veterans Day but, the day is set aside to thank and honor living veterans who served honorably in the military – in wartime or peacetime.

VA Claims Assistance
Post 111’s Service Officer, Nick Cosentino, is at the Post on the 2nd Tuesday of each month from 8 am to 10 am to aid Veterans and Members with their VA claims. Plan on being early and you must sign in. Bring as much information as possible to support your claim. You may make an appointment with Nick by calling the office at (843) 359-5669.
Nick was recently recognized by the Horry County Police Department for his service as a volunteer. For the past seven years Nick has volunteered five days a week at the North Precinct. Nick exemplifies what it means to be a volunteer.
What is Americanism
One of American Legion Post 111’s primary goals is to teach Americanism to the young Americans in the Conway SC area. As such we promote youth programs such as American Legion baseball, Palmetto Boys State, an annual Oratorical Competition, and the Nathan Wolf Law Cadet Academy.
Americanism is the essential combination of Freedom, Justice, Individual Rights, and Responsibilities that define us and what we stand for. Americanism is also Pride in Country, expressed without reservation, and the duty Legionnaires have in imparting patriotic values to new generations.
