MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (October 5, 2018) – Mount Pleasant Town Council yesterday signed a proclamation in support of the construction of the National Medal of Honor Museum at Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum, located in Mount Pleasant, to honor U.S. military service members who distinguished themselves by acts of valor.
“Mount Pleasant Town Council has been an early and constant supporter of the National Medal of Honor Museum,” said Mount Pleasant Mayor Will Haynie. “We have long honored U.S. military service members awarded the highest and most prestigious personal military decoration for their acts of heroism.”
In support of the project, the Town has granted waivers and deferrals through the planning permit process and pledged $1.5 million towards road enhancements.
