USS Holland AS-32 Association
2nd Reunion 2005
Charleston, South Carolina
South Carolina, the Palmetto State, is a leaf-shaped state in located in the southeastern part of the United States. It is so cool that South Carolina is leaf-shaped because the shape is famous for its beautiful plant life. While the states north of South Carolina are snowing, flowers and trees are budding
State Flower     State Bird

The Jessamine it is indigenous to every nook and corner of the State; it is the first premonitor of coming Spring; its fragrance greets us first in the woodland and its delicate flower suggests the pureness of gold; its perpetual return out of the dead Winter suggests the lesson of constancy in, loyalty to and patriotism in the service of the State. "No flower that blooms holds such perfume, As kindness and sympathy won. Wherever there grows the sheltering pine Is clinging a Yellow Jessamine vine." From "Legend of the Yellow Jessamine," by Mrs. Teresa Strickland of Anderson, South Carolina, when the flower was made the emblem of Dixie Chapter, U.D.C., about 1906.
