Military Coalition

In 2003, Military Veterans and Government Groups recognized the need to combine Memorial Day and Veterans Day into single events and in a single Town location.  The resulting effort caused the errection of the Veterans Memorial and the formation of the Hilton Head Island Military Veterans Coalition dedicated to the construction of the Veterans Memorial and the conduct of the Memorial Day and Veterans Day Cermonies.

The founding member organizations of the Military Veterans Coalition included  the local chapter of The Military Officers Association of America,   The Hilton Head Council of the U.S. Navy League, and America Legion Post # 185.  In 2013, Post # 185 dropped out of the Military Coalition, but was replaced by American Legion Post # 49.

The Coalition, along with the Town of Hilton Head, operates and manages the Veterans Memorial in Shelter Cove Community Park.  The celebration of the Memorial Day activities is planned and managed by the U.S. Navy League, while The Military Officers Association and/or American Legion Post # 49  plan and manage the Veterans Day activities on alternating years.  Other Veteran Organizations in the area are being contacted as additional members of the Coalition.
