CHESTER, S.C. — The United States Patriot Corps Headquarters Drill was held on 23 OCT 2021 in Chester County, South Carolina. Finishing touches were being made to the new Headquarters building while the USPC Generals Staff presented updates, upcoming operation plans, and planning proposals to BG Ricard Patton.
New Recruits were sworn in by Brigadier General Ricard Patton and greeted by Sergeant Major of the Patriot Corps Christopher “Hammer” McKeown.
SMPC McKeown said “We have several upcoming events we are presently setting up and practicing for like a Color Guard to present colors on Veterans Day (11 November 2021) for a Quilt of Valor Presentation being held at USC Upstate, 301 N. Campus Blvd, Spartanburg, SC 29303. Also, we have just completed a Recruiting Presentation Table that will be used on December 11-12, 2021, at the South Carolina State Fair Grounds in Columbia S.C. We are also working to have all the new uniform items in by next month along with the new uniform regulations. I am so proud of how hard the USPC members have worked to get so much done in such a short time span, these are very dedicated members.”
