VETERANS HONOURED BY CONFEDERATE DAUGHTERS

VETERANS HONOURED BY CONFEDERATE DAUGHTERS IN VETERANS DAY CEREMONY AT TAMPA PALMS GOLF & COUNTRY CLUB

Temple Terrace, Florida - The Augusta Jane Evans Wilson Chapter 2640, United Daughters of the Confederacy (UDC), Temple Terrace, Florida honoured 3 Vietnam Veterans on Saturday, November 3rd 2012 in its Veteran’s Day Ceremony of Bestowal of Military Service Awards.

The following veterans were honoured: Cross of Military Service: Leon Cornelius Duke and Mark Edward Stemple; National Defense Service Medal: Wesley Howard Frank and Jackie Carlton May.

The somber ceremony was attended by family members, friends and guests and was followed by a catered luncheon at Tampa Palms Golf & Country Club, Tampa, Florida.

In 1919, the UDC began bestowing Military Service Awards upon the descendants of Confederate Veterans for their service in the U.S. Armed Forces, and this tradition continues today. The UDC currently bestows award for service from WWII through to and including the Global War on Terror.

The UDC Military Service Awards are the outgrowth of the “Southern Cross of Honour” a decoration which was conceived and bestowed by the UDC and which recognized the valor of the Confederate soldier and sailor and represented the thanks of a grateful nation that fate denied. Unique in military lore, they were conceived, produced, and awarded by that nation’s Daughters in the absence of its fallen government.

The United Daughters of the Confederacy is the Nation’s Oldest Patriotic Organization, dating to 1896, whose original purpose of the care of the aging Confederate Veterans after the War Between the States.

Today, the Organizations objectives are patriotic, historical, educational, memorial and benevolent.

The Augusta Jane Evans Wilson Chapter 2640 was chartered in April 2004 in Temple Terrace. Interested Veterans may contact Recorder of Crosses Mrs. Ron Queen (Sandra) 813-267-2119 or visit the Chapter’s Web site at www.AugustaJanesUDC.org.
