'Thank You' mural presented to SC National Guard

Posted: Updated:

Deploying South Carolina National Guard troops will get a final "thank you" for their service with a mural of gratitude as they leave post.

The Carolina Cup Racing Association and McDonald's of Camden presented the American flag coloring mural to Brigadier General Van McCarty.  It is a collection of artful colorings and messages of gratitude from people who attended the 2013 Colonial Cup.

"We're trying to establish it as an annual event," said McDonalds of Camden owner Bill Sensor, who donated the mural. "It's just to support our military.  It's a wonderful event."

Volunteers from the Ronald McDonald House and Blue Star Mothers of the Midlands organized the mural signing at the steeplechase races in November.
