We are a unit based out of Charleston South Carolina and we are seeking recruits in the South Carolina area. We will also except recruits in North Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, and Alabama and even Florida.

We are a fun friendly new group having with us three in state South Carolina volunteers and other volunteers from Tennessee Alabama and Pennsylvania that do national events with us.

We do not do fees. So you don't have to pay once a month or year to be a member.

We are not hardcore, but we do try to be as authentic as possible.

Most of our events are local instate South Carolina but we try to have events out of state that is if we can get the number of people to go.

Anymore questions you can email me at nc69th@yahoo.com

Respectfully
Corporal Chadd M. Vail
