SECU donates millions for Veteran's Memorial Walkway at Battleship

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The State Employees' Credit Union announced a big donation that will soon make a Veteran's Memorial Walkway around the Battleship North Carolina come to life.

The $3 million pledge from the SECU was announced just minutes before the annual Memorial Day Observance ceremony aboard the Battleship tonight, which started and concluded with military musical arrangements.

Among attendees for the special service were Governor Pat McCrory, who later spoke in honor of our fallen servicemen. Guest speakers also reflected on the past, as people of all generations gathered to pay their respects.
