Ground breaking for Veteran's Remembrance Wall

RIDGELAND, SC (WTOC) -

A ceremonial groundbreaking was held Wednesday on Palm Key near Ridgeland for a Remembrance Wall and Chapel.

It will be the first of it's kind in the area for Iraq and Afghanistan veterans.

"Just to have a place for veterans and a safe place where you don't have to worry about anything and get out there be with each other is so special," veteran Bryan Anderson said.

The ground breaking ceremony was part of Healing Heroes Golf Week when more than a dozen severely injured vets from the Global War on Terror were honored.

The Independence Fund organized the event and hopes to turn part of Palm Key into a rehab center and relaxation resort for veterans.
