More than 50 recipients of the Medal of Honor will meet this week in South Carolina, with most of the activity occurring in the Charleston area.

The Associated Press has a report on what the recipients of the country's highest military honor will be doing while in S.C. You can check it out here.

This story doesn't have a Beaufort-specific angle, but we figured the Beaufort community, with its proud military heritage, would want to know about it.

If you're interested in Medal of Honor history you also should check out this story and video from the Charleston Post and Courier on how the number of living Medal of Honor recipients is dwindling. Today there are only 87 living recipients, though President Obama soon will award the honor to an 88th.
