Our Hometown Interview: March 2019

During the month of March, ATMC a non-profit cooperative offering services such as internet and cable to Brunswick and Columbus County, will feature The Friends of Fort Caswell Rifle Range on their Our Home program, which includes interviews with Norma Eckard, president, and Ron Eckard, who serves on the Board.

The half hour program will air 3 times a day, 8:30 am, 11:00 am, and 6:30 pm.

For the new readers to the website, welcome!

Highlights of the Honor a Brunswick County World War I Veteran program include the following lists.

  • The Brunswick County WWI veterans list, which acts as an index to additional information such as WWI Profiles either written about or mentioning the veteran, as well as posts such as visits to cemeteries that mention the veteran. Date of birth, death, and Findagrave listings are included if known.
  • The WWI Army/Marine Division rosters webpage includes some of the divisions that have been included in WWI Profiles, the sources and even rosters published for the units. Of those divisions, a small roster of Brunswick County veterans is also provided.
  • The Published WWI Profile list shows the dates WWI Profiles have been published, as well as the dates the veteran was featured in local newspaper articles.

Please consider donating to honor a veteran. To date, 401 of 724 veterans have been honored. Funds will be used to publish the book of WWI Brunswick County veterans, as well as continue restoring the Fort Caswell Rifle Range.

Thanks to Mary Earp for reaching out to ATMC and organizing the interview!
