Honoring our
South Carolina Veterans


South Carolina has a proud military tradition. The free enterprise system, democracy, and liberties we enjoy in America are only possible because of those brave men and women who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom – and those who continue to defend it today. The South Carolina Chamber of Commerce thanks the men and women of our Armed Forces, and especially this week we would like to honor Lt. Murray Price, our WWII hero who we have the privilege of awarding at our Annual Summit on Thursday. Lt. Price, as he humbly has said, is accepting this award on behalf of all of our soldiers who have gone before him.
1st Lt. Murray Price, our Sgt. William Jasper Freedom Award Winner, will be honored on Thursday at our luncheon at the 36th Annual Summit. Lt. Price is a WWII veteran and Lexington native who is one of South Carolina’s oldest living war heroes at the age of 94. Lt. Price is also a businessman, having retired as the president of Pearce-Young-Angel Company (currently known as US Foods). He flew 40 missions throughout the South Pacific and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross and the Air Medal with six Oak Leaf Clusters. After the war, Lt. Price took up the mantle of community service serving on the boards of banks, colleges, hospitals, chambers of commerce, arts associations, and churches. The Columbia YMCA was his main interest for much of his life, raising money and donating 20 acres of land to the camp. A lifelong resident of Lexington, Lt. Murray Price has dedicated his life to serving others. We congratulate him on this award and look forward to presenting him with the award on Thursday at our Summit! Happy Veterans Day 2015 to all of our veterans!
