York County vet­er­ans and sup­port­ers gath­ered Satur­day morn­ing next to the pub­lic li­brary in down­town York to un­veil the new York County Vet­er­ans Me­mo­rial.

The me­mo­rial in­cludes 34 names left off an older mon­u­ment in a ceme­tery off U.S. 321, be­tween York and Clover.

Vet­er­ans J.J. Mat­tingly and Ron­nie Tay­lor with the York County Vet­er­ans Ad­vi­sory Coun­cil said the new mon­u­ment rec­og­nizes all York County res­i­dents who died “in the­ater dur­ing war.”

“The last name we put on that mon­u­ment was Spc. (Javion) Sul­li­van from Fort Mill, who was killed this year,” Tay­lor said. “It’s my prayer I don’t live long enough to see an­other name put on that mon­u­ment.”
