Hunley JROTC Award Fund

Annually, the Arizona Division recognizes outstanding Junior ROTC Cadets with the presentation of the SCV's H.L. Hunley Award.  The award, named after the famous Confederate submarine, CSS H.L. Hunley, the first submarine in history to sink an enemy warship, represents honor, courage and commitment.

The recipient also receives the David N. Showalter Leadership Award which recognizes outstanding examples of leadership by JROTC Cadets.

Although the award has a naval theme, it is appropriate for presentation to an Army JROTC Cadet in that the submarine was commanded by Lieutenant George Dixon, an Army officer and a veteran of the battle of Shiloh.

This fund helps cover all the costs associated with providing the award to be presented including the medal, certificate, ribbon and shipping charges.

Donations are accepted from SCV members and non-members.
