Our research honoring World War II veterans extends across the pond. An English gentleman from Bude, a seaside town in northeast Cornwall, asked us for help. Next year marks the 80th anniversary of soldiers embarking on his town to train for D-Day. Citizens plan to build monuments to recognize the troops who fought to provide freedom to those in Bude and across England.

DHEC Director Dr. Edward Simmer presented appreciation coins to State Library Director Leesa Aiken and Collections and Services Director Virginia Pierce. Aiken and Pierce were instrumental in helping DHEC find information about an old gravesite behind one of its State Park buildings. The goal is to create a historical plaque honoring the site and those buried there.
