Another Grave Marking Milestone!

Ken Oakley Grave Medal.001-001

The Col. Stephen Trigg Chapter is pleased to announce that Ken Oakley, Past President of the chapter, has completed the requirements for the SAR’s “Patriot Grave Marking Medal.” He is the fifth chapter Compatriot to reach eligibility for this medal. In order to qualify, a Compatriot of the SAR must participate in a tangible way in the marking of fifteen Revolutionary War Patriot graves. Ken’s first fifteen graves marked include earning credit for five Patriot graves through his participation in the Blue Licks Commemoration last August.  Over sixty men died in that battle and were interred in a mass grave on the site.  Yearly participation earns credit for five graves toward each medal earned.

Ken’s Patriot Grave Marking Medal Application has been approved by Kentucky Society President Chuck Scott and forwarded on to the National Patriot Grave Marking Committee. He will receive his medal in a special ceremony later this year.
