The 2024 Horry County Museum Documentary Film Series continues with Fallen Heroes, part of the Carolina Stories Series from ETV. This 30 minute film features the World War II stories of South Carolina natives William Farrow and Thomas Dry Howie. William Farrow was one of 80 airmen who volunteered to fly 16 B-25 Mitchell bombers in the Doolittle Raid, taking off from the USS Hornet aircraft carrier, bombing Japan, and then landing in China. Thomas Dry Howie was given command of the 3rd Battalion and sent to take the pivotal town of Saint-Lo in the Battle of Normandy and is remembered today as the “Major of Saint Lo”.
The film is free to the public and will be shown at 1:00 PM, Wednesday, March 20th, at the Horry County Museum, located at 805 Main Street in Conway.
