MONTHLY MEETING OF THE SC SCV MECHANIZED CAVALRY "LOW COUNTRY CREW"

This month's meeting of the SC SCVM Low Country Crew had a number of highlights. First, past Horry Rough

 and Readys SCV #1026 Commander Austin Futrell was sworn into our ranks. Despite recovering from a motorcycle accident

in May that required extensive surgery on his left leg, past Commander Futrell is on the mend and working hard

toward being back on two wheels. We know he will soon be back in the wind with us all.

Ms. Ann Grice received her certificate of membership into the Order of the Confederate Rose and was presented

a vest by Corporal Bobby Scarborough. The vest had been property of his wife, Mary Ellen, but being unable to ride had

been stored away. After discussion, Mr. and Mrs. Scarborough decided to pass the vest on to Ms. Grice. Ann is very supportive of the

SC SCVMC as well as Horry Rough and Readys SCV #1026 and is faithful to attend meetings.

Young Mr Brayden Hall was presented a vest by 2nd Lt. 2nd Platoon Larry LD Davis. Brayden is the son of TC Hall and

an upcoming supporter and defender of Confederate heritage and history. Immediately after the meeting, Braydens parents

were taking him to the Sam Davis Christian Youth Camp in Mullins South Carolina.

 Great to see such young men in our ranks to carry on the tradition of defending the Confederate soldiers good name.

Reported by Pvt James Smithson, #2470

I'm calling this report Rebel Road dogs ride again. We left Burlington North Carolina bound for Townsend Tennessee

to participate in the SCV mechanized Calvary annual reunion this June. It was one of the biggest ones I've ever seen.

The facility was very nice and we had plenty of room. There were a lot of mechanized cavalry brothers and OCR

sisters there. It was so much fun to see old friends and new faces and see how our organization has grown.

 I enjoyed the rides and learning about the history of the area

We learned about the iron works at tellico plains and General Vaughn who was a Tennessee Patriot during the War

Between the States. He was one of the last generals to surrender. He had a checkered past but he was a hero. We ate some awesome

 food and the event planners did a awesome job putting this thing together. I don't think most people know how much

work goes into something like this. Sometimes it seems like a thankless job but I always try to tell those in charges how much I appreciate their hard work

After annual we rode up through Kentucky and spent the night visiting friends. It sure is a beautiful state. Our next

stop was Brazil Indiana where we visited with Carylon's family for a couple days.

Our road trip ended and we returned home to reminisce on our trip. I look forward to our next adventure.
