Mr. Ralph Benefield was honored in November by the Major General Patrick R. Cleburne UDC Chapter of Heflin. During World War II, he served as a Technical Sergeant in the United States Army. This UDC Chapter honored Mr. Benefield with a World War II Cross of Military Service. His Confederate ancestor was William Benefield who served in Company I 50th Regiment Georgia Infantry.

Also at the November meeting, this Cleburne UDC Chapter welcomed Mrs. Edna McLeod of Ranburne as a new member. She received her United Daughters of the Confederacy membership certificate on the service of her great grandfather John N. Robinson who served in Company C 56th Regiment Georgia Infantry.

The Chapter’s project in November was a Thanksgiving canned food drive. A large quantity was collected for donation to those less fortunate. Also, the Chapter mailed 50 Christmas cards to “Holiday Mail for Heroes” to remember those currently serving in the military.
