U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-Seneca, will receive the "2014 Nathan Hale Patriot Award" at the Citadel Republican Society's annual Patriot Dinner in Charleston Saturday.
Graham will speak at the dinner, held at the Holliday Alumni Center, according to an email about the event. World War II veterans also will be honored for the 70th anniversary of D-Day, the day allied forces invaded Normandy, France.
The dinner raises money to support Citadel Republic Society cadets on their annual trip to the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C. The club is the Citadel's largest, with more than 300 participating cadets.
