95 WW2 veterans identified in OC

December 9, 2013

An effort to identify Second World War veterans living in Oconee County, so far, has produced 95 men and women. The county Office of Veterans Affairs seeks to identify additional numbers, but will impose a deadline for its project. “We are going to continue to look for our ‘greatest generation’ through December 31,” V-A Director Jerry Dyar said. Dyar’s office hopes to soon announce plans to honor the county’s WW2 veterans. If you have a family member or a friend who served in the military between 1941 and 1946, you are asked to contact the V-A Office in Walhalla at 638-4231.
