Sands Resorts Donates Military Memorabilia to State Museum

hall of heroesThe Sands Resorts located in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina has recently donated its collection of displayed military memorabilia to South Carolina’s largest military museum.  The “Hall of Heroes” is a permanent tribute to the men and women of the armed services, law enforcement, and firefighters who protect and defend our nation. The display celebrates these men and women and their history.

The centerpiece of the Hall of Heroes is a replica of the Vietnam Memorial Wall and includes each of the 58,253 names. The Gold Dog Tag display honors soldiers who have died from the end of the Vietnam War until after 9/11. Every gold dog tag has the name, rank, branch of service, date of casualty and location of each soldier.

For nearly a decade, Sands Resorts proudly displayed a “Hall of Heroes” Collection on the first floor of the Ocean Dunes/Sand Dunes Resort & Conference Center. The new resort owner, Eddie Frazier felt like the collection was not getting the amount of attention it so rightly deserves, so he wanted to find a better home for this collective tribute. He decided the right home is the South Carolina Military Museum in Columbia, South Carolina. In the best interest of this collection along with those dedicated heroes this collection represents, Eddie Frazier decided to donate this tribute so they could be better recognized and appreciated.

As an appreciation to Mr. Frazier’s thoughtful donation of the Hall of Heroes to the museum, Director Ewell G. “Buddy” Sturgis of the South Carolina Military Museum, presented Frazier The Military Support Medal honoring his decision to showcase this memorable collection to the military museum.

The SC Military Museum is volunteer-based, and depends on state funds and donations like Mr. Frazier’s in order to remain open. Since 2007, the museum has featured a variety of weapons, artillery, uniforms and more to give a complete view of our State’s military history. The building is the largest land based military museum in South Carolina and is located at 225 Bluff Road, in Columbia, South Carolina. The museum has free admission and parking, and is open Monday through Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm.

The Sands Resorts and Eddie Frazier are proud to have made this donation and will continue to pay tribute to the brave men and women that serve our country.
