The Rotary Club of Myrtle Beach recently welcomed members to an in-person meeting to celebrate Veteran’s Day. The celebration held simultaneously on Zoom, featured speaker, Sergeant E-5 Bud Shepard, who served from 1968-1971 in the Air Cavalry in Viet Nam. Shepard, who was shot down and injured, hid in the jungle for three days before being captured by the Viet Cong and held as a POW. Rotarians heard recounts of Shepard’s life-changing experiences.
The Myrtle Beach Rotary Club holds members of the military and their families in the highest esteem and used the occasion of Veteran’s Day to honor these men and women for their service.
