The H. L. Hunley Award

Annually, SCV Camp #68 recognizes outstanding Junior ROTC Cadets with the presentation of the SCV's H.L. Hunley Award.  The award, named after the famous Confederate submarine, CSS H.L. Hunley, the first submarine in history to sink an enemy warship, represents honor, courage and commitment.

Because of the naval theme of the award, the program was initially developed for Navy and Marine Corps JROTC Units in the state of South Carolina only.  After many inquiries from the Army and Air Force the Program was expanded to not just Army and Air Force Units in South Carolina, but throughout the country.  The award should go to a rising second year cadet who has demonstrated the qualities of Honor, Courage and in particular Commitment to his/her unit throughout the school year.

Recipients are selected by the Military Instructors for their JROTC Unit.  Instructors wishing to apply for the award for a member of their unit should contact the Camp #68 Chaplain for detailed information on the criteria and the presentation of the H.L. Hunley medal and award certificate.
