Charles Schryer, of Flora, won the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution “Outstanding Veteran Volunteer Award,” according to a news release from the Daniel H. Brush Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution. The award acknowledges the contributions of a veteran in meeting the needs of other veterans.
Schryer is a veteran of the Vietnam War. He was nominated for the award by Dorothy Rudoni, a member of the local chapter and volunteer at the Marion VA Medical Center.
