The well being of our veterans, soldiers and their families is of the utmost importance to the members of our chapter. Our dynamic Service to Veterans Committee volunteers at the Ralph H Johnson VA Medical Center in Charleston, SC. Along with members from other local chapters, these ladies were recently awarded a Certificate of Appreciation from the Department of Veterans Affairs for their dedication to our veterans. Honoring the patriotism of our chapter namesake, Eliza Lucas Pinckney, the chapter has purchased one of the DAR Pathway of the Patriots trees. These 250 Patriots recognized by the project will be featured in an NSDAR companion online resource in order to raise awareness of those who achieved American Independence.
