Marine Corps Air Station and Savannahís Hunter Army Airfield are all within a short drive. The area also is home to a large number of active and retired servicemen and women. With such a deep military presence, town leaders thought it only fitting to find a way to honor veterans. Previous veteranís ceremonies had been scattered throughout the town. Yet town leaders wanted a central location to gather the Islandís veterans. The idea of a veteransí memorial was born.

The town agreed on Shelter Cove Community Park for the site. The town and coalition members worked on the design with a local architect, who donated his services.

The Hilton Head Island Veteransí Memorial was finished in time for the 2005 Veteransí Day Ceremony. Note To Editor only visible by Contributor and editor
