With remembering hearts, the people of Orangeburg County on July 5, 1959 assembled to dedicate these gardens and this memorial to the service men
from this county who paid the supreme sacrifice for their country's safety, in so many lands, on so many seas and in so many skies in World War II (Dec. 7, 1941 - Aug. 14, 1945) and in the Korean Conflict (June 25, 1950 - July 27, 1953) Their sacrifice, in responding to their country’s call, preserved the freedoms long cherished in this nation for all who survived. Theirs constituted an inspiring example of the human qualities of duty, love for country, courage and faith, that will serve as a guide to the youth of future generations. Each among those listed here is remembered a hero. Each gave the most man can give - - - life itself. “So night is grandeur to our dust, so near is God to man. When duty whispers low, “Thou must;" the youth replies "I can".” Emerson
