Pickens Post Office Renamed to Honor Vietnam Fallen Hero
On March 16, 2023 at 11 am at the Griffin Ebenezer Baptist Church the dedication ceremony to name the Pickens Post Office to Charles Johnson Jr. will take place.
Charles Johnson Jr. was the first person from Pickens County killed in the Vietnam War more than 50 years ago on March 30, 1966 . After renewed interest in the sacrifice of Johnson and his family a resolution was passed by the Pickens City Council requesting the Pickens Post Office be named after Johnson. The Pickens Post Office is located at 110 Johnson Street, Pickens, SC.
