From staff reports
The Rotary Club of Beaufort has recognized a service member from each of Beaufort County’s three military installations as its Service Members of the Year.
Unit commanders and their cadre from the installations nominated service members for recognition. The recipients were honored at a ceremony hosted by the Rotary Club of Beaufort at its November 9 luncheon meeting.
The criteria for selection emphasized both outstanding military service and significant activities benefiting the local community.
This year’s honorees were Sgt. Robert T. Pellicer, MCRD Parris Island; Corpsman 3rd Class Santana Parchment, Navy Readiness and Training Command (NRTC) Beaufort; and Sgts. Joseph M. Boyle and Gabriel B. George, MCAS Beaufort.
Each received a plaque and a check for $200.
