Vietnam Veteran to speak

First Lieutenant Patrick Cleburne McClary, III, USMC, Retired, known to thousands as “Clebe McClary,” is an American hero. During the Vietnam War, the Lowcountry native was serving as a platoon leader in the First Reconnaissance Battalion. On the battalion’s 19th patrol, the unit was attacked by the Viet Cong. Lieutenant McClary was seriously wounded, losing his left arm and left eye, yet he continued to lead his men. The numerous surgeries and long recovery period that followed could have taken a bitter toll, but he faced his rehabilitation with characteristic determination. In the years since, Lietenant McClary has become a symbol of courage and hope to the many audiences around the world.  Please join us on Wednesday, June 28, 2023, for our Patriotic Celebration and welcome 1st Lt. Clebe McClary as he speaks of his Vietnam Service and heroism during the Tet Offensive campaign in Vietnam. Clebe also speaks about the importance of relationships and how we need to strengthen and work on them each and every day. Dinner will be served at 5pm at Darlington Presbyterian Church, 311 Pearl St., Darlington, and First Lieutenant McClary will speak at 6pm. For more information, please call 843-393–4851
