About Our Post

We are American Legion Horry Post 111

 

Flag Advocacy raisedHorry Post 111 was founded in 1925 in Conway SC, and has served Veterans of all branches of the United States’ military from WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Grenada, Panama, and the more recent Gulf War conflicts, and the War on Terror.

Our motto is “Veterans serving Veterans in the Conway SC area

These Veterans have put their efforts toward serving the Conway area community by providing area high school students the opportunity to play American Legion Baseball, to take part in Oratorical Competitions (conducted annually), and to take part in the Palmetto Boys State and the Nathan Wolf Law Cadet Academy.

Boys State and the Law Academy teach our young men about how our government works and about how Law and Order is handled in South Carolina.

Post 111 also supports the JROTC programs of both Carolina Forest high school and Conway high school, and we annually recognize students from these programs who excel in Academics and Military Knowledge and Skills.

The Post has participated in countless events within the community, helping when and wherever we can. Members place American Flags on main thoroughfares in Conway at proper holidays throughout the year, and they hold a flag retirement ceremony annually, usually on or around Flag Day, June 14th.

Post 111, with the help of Conway National Bank, offers collection points for American Flags and South Carolina Flags which need replacing or retiring.
