Post 6734 has the distinction of being honored as  an "ALL AMERICAN POST" for outstanding accomplishments, distinction and service within the VFW organization.

Every year VFW Post 6734 hosts the Voice of Democracy award for high school students, issuing several certificates, awards, and bonds to participatants. The Patriot's Pen Award is our competition for junior high students and we host an annual National Citizenship Education Teacher's Award.

Through Operation Uplink, VFW has given out millions in pre-paid phone cards to veterans in veterans homes, hospitals and active duty military personnel and their families.

The Post began an annual Commander's Ball in 1962 which is much anticipated yearly. In 2011, members of the South Carolina House of Representatives passed a House Resolution recognizing VFW Post 6734 for commendable community service and veteran assistance on our sixty-fifth anniversary.
