   The membership of the camp wishes to thank the following schools for allowing us to present our awards to their esteemed and honorable cadets of the J.R.O.T.C. program.​​

The H. L. Hunley Award was originally created by the South Carolina Division - Sons of Confederate Veterans in 2016, to recognize deserving Junior ROTC cadets who have demonstrated the qualities of Honor, Courage, and Commitment to his or her unit throughout the school year.


   The award honors the crews of the Confederate submarine H. L. Hunley, the first submarine to sink an enemy vessel in combat. Now in its sixth year of existence, the program has been expanded beyond the Navy / Marine JROTC program to all branches of service and beyond the state of South Carolina to any interested school in the United States. Typically, the award is given to a rising second-year cadet identified by his JROTC instructors and is presented by a member of the local Sons of Confederate Veterans camp.

“Do your duty in all things. You cannot do more; you should never wish to do less.” "I think it better to do right, even if we suffer in doing so than incur the reproach of our consciences and posterity.” "All that the South has ever desired was that the Union as established by our forefathers should be preserved and that the government as originally organized should be administered in purity and truth."
