The  VETERANS CORRIDOR OF HONOR is the result of a motion by Chapter member James Hunt seeking to have interstate Highway I-385 named  Korean Veterans Highway President Eddie Wooten appointed Chapter member, retired State Senator Lewis Vaughn, to contact State officials about the possibility and the procedure. Meeting with local and state legislators, it was decided that it should recognize veterans of all previous and current wars not just Korean veterans.
Acting upon the request of the KWVA Foothills Chapter Of SC #301. the South Carolina General Assembly passed a resolution naming a 12 mile stretch of Hwy I-385 through Greenville and Laurens Counties for all veterans of the 20th and 21st century wars. At the beginning of this stretch of highway is the sign that reads

At 2.5 mile intervals on each side of the 385 going East and West, the signs read WWI, WWII, The Korean War, The Vietnam War, Persian Gulf War and Undeclared Wars for the current War in Iraq and Afganistan.  A dedication program was held, at the Railhouse Restaurant Fountain Inn. September 5, 2014 with Congressman Trey Gowdy the keynote speaker. This project is a first in South Carolina and the hope is that it will generate a similar interest in other states.
