The Veterans Memorial Walk is situated in the heart of Hinesville at Bryant Commons. The Liberty County community has a rich military history, dating back to the Revolutionary War. This paved walkway is a peaceful place to reflect and remember the soldiers who’ve fought for our country.
The Coastal Empire is rich in military history. Our community proudly served prior to the revolutionary war with the Militiamen. Today, our communities surround the military bases of Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield. The history of those bases goes back to WWII when then, Camp Stewart, served as a training base for the Army’s Air Defense Artillery who fought in WWII, and Hunter served many Aviation units who flew during the war as well. Those bases were also home the 24th Infantry Division for more than 20 years and are now home for the 3rd Infantry Division; one of only ten remaining divisions in our active army. Through the years, the military mission and units have changed, but our communities are where so many service members and their families have called home.
With a long history of military support and significance, the Veterans of our community feel it’s only fitting that the city has a place to celebrate and remember our Veterans-past, present and future. – Courtesy from the Veterans Memorial Walk
