Southern Campaign

This past Tuesday, Majority Whip James Clyburn, Representative Ralph Norman, and I announced the Southern Campaign of the Revolution National Heritage Corridor Act. The entire South Carolina delegation has cosponsored the bill. The act would provide funds to protect and preserve Revolutionary War sites across South Carolina and North Carolina over the next 15 years. I look forward to working together to preserve these historic sites throughout the state.

Volunteer with the Floodwater Commission

On November 8th, the Floodwater Commission will be hosting the Horry County Service Day. It will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. with registration beginning at 8:30 a.m. Volunteers are able to choose their location and workload level. The locations are Conway City Marina, Town of Loris Recreation Department, Socastee Park & Yacht Basin Landing, and James R. Frazier Community Center (Bucksport). The work includes clearing of debris, trash, and limbs from waterways and the surrounding areas. For more details and to register to volunteer visit the Horry County Website.

Veteran History Project

Many veterans share stories of their service with friends and family, but too often these stories are not recorded in a permanent way. It is important that future generations understand the selfless sacrifice made by military veterans and I want to help preserve their experiences by working with the Library of Congress Veterans History Project. The Veterans History Project is an effort to collect, preserve, and make accessible the experiences of American war veterans by recording their personal narratives and archiving them for future use.
