CRESCOM BANK SPONSORS NEW SEASON OF LOCAL TELEVISION PROGRAM ‘MILITARY MEMOIRS’
New Season Began in February
February 28, 2013, Myrtle Beach, S.C. – CresCom Bank has partnered with “Military Memoirs,” a locally-produced television program that features historical interviews with local United States Armed Forces veterans, and this season, will serve as a new sponsor for the program. The sponsorship is the result of CresCom’s continued support of area veterans, which includes its free Veteran’s Checking services and products.
Each 30-minute segment of “Military Memoirs” will feature the story of one veteran and will include his or her story through photographs, maps and archival film footage.
“Military Memoirs” airs daily on Educational Channel 12 (HTC Cable and Time-Warner Cable) at 10:30 a.m., 6:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m., as well as twice daily on the HTC Public Affairs Channel. The new season began in February. Conway Ford is also a co-sponsor of the program.
Upcoming episodes will feature a World War II Navy veteran of the South Pacific, an Air Force missile launch officer from the Cold War, a U.S. Army veteran of the Vietnam War and a Marine who served during World War II.

“We’re pleased to support such a valuable program, especially since it helps tell the story of valuable members of our community who sacrificed so much for America,” said CresCom Bank President, Commercial Bank, M.J. Huggins, III. “Whether it’s through our Veteran’s Checking services and products or the sponsorship of this program, we continue to look for ways to say ‘thank you’ to our soldiers.”
“Military Memoirs” is produced by the Center for Military and Veterans Studies at Coastal Carolina University (CCU) and the CCU Department of Media Services.
All interviews, as well as additional oral history interviews collected by the Center for Military and Veterans Studies, are preserved at the U.S. Library of Congress through a partnership between the Center and the Library’s Veterans History Project.
