COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina lawmakers are honoring 10 members of the armed forces who died over the past year with a ceremony in the state capital.
The Senate Republican Caucus says relatives of each of the military members are receiving a state flag and the Order of the Palmetto Patriot during the ceremony on Wednesday in Columbia. A luncheon is also part of the event.
The families are also being introduced and recognized in the state Senate chamber after the ceremony.
