Known victims of the Korean and Vietnam wars who hailed from Columbus County were memorialized by Whiteville Jaycess on a temporary plaque at the northwest corner of the courthouse. The plaque was installed to coincide with Memorial Day. The Jaycees said they realized that some names were missing and hoped that the victims’ families would advise them of additional names to be added for a permanent plaque. Jaycees helping install the memorial were (from left) Garland McCullen, Joe Strickland, Curtis Ward, Don Peacock, Shafter Sasser, Earl McKeithan and Buddy Inman.
