Mr. Harold Davis of Heflin was honored by the Major General Patrick R. Cleburne Chapter 2632 on May 21. This UDC Chapter presented Mr. Davis with a World War II Cross of Military Service and also a Korean War National Defense Medal in appreciation of his service in the U.S. Army as a Sergeant. He is a lineal descendant of Charles Venable who served in Company A 41st Georgia Infantry during the War Between the States.

The military bestowal ceremony was held at the Ayers Auditiorium of the Anniston-Calhoun County Library. The awards were presented by Lynda Thrower Lowery of Heflin and Jo Groover Howard of Oxford. The veteran’s sons, Steve Davis and Donald Davis, were present to share in the honoring of their father.

Mrs. Deborah Epperson Machen, the newest member of the Major General Patrick R. Cleburne Chapter 2632, United Daughters of the Confederacy, also received her UDC membership certificate on May 21. Her eligibility to be a UDC member is based on the military service of her great grandfather, William Irvin Epperson, who served in Company E10th Confederate Cavalry.

UDC supplemental certificates were presented to Chapter members Betty Taylor Bunn and Anne Aiken Vaillancourt.
