On Saturday, December 3, 2022, the Hartsville National Guard Armory (“Alpha” Company, 351st Aviation Support Battalion, South Carolina Army National Guard) held a Christmas party for the soldiers and their families. The fun day consisted of a Christmas meal prepared, in part, by the non-commissioned officers (NCO) assigned to the unit and served by the NCO’s and “Alpha” company officers. The meal included a variety of desserts donated by the Hartville American Legion Post 53 Auxiliary Unit. The soldiers also enjoyed raffles for many door prizes, numerous indoor and outdoor games and activities, and recognition of the soldiers who reenlisted during the year.
“Alpha” Company Commander, First Lieutenant Jamie Williams, gave the Hartsville American Legion Post 53 the opportunity to honor the reenlisting soldiers by presenting them with American Legion “Thank You for Your Service” coins. The soldiers who reenlisted are: Staff Sergeants Jarrod Brown, Raven Kennedy, and James Kinsey; Sergeants Quintarje Carolina, Devon Gibbs, Alencia Livingston, Seneca Rushing, Tevyianna Seabrooks, and Ashley Thomas; and Specialists Jadasia Dallas, Cody Daney, Edward Graham, Deja McConnell, Tyrese Tucker, and Antoine White. The coins were presented by Post 53 Commander John Benjamin and Finance Officer David Carlton.
The Post 53 Auxiliary Unit members who donated desserts were Janice Carlton, Linda Eayres, Janel Jackson, Adrienne LaDue, and Marcia Stegner.
