This year the Military Order of the Devil Dogs (Marine Corp) held its annual national convention in Charleston. Every year, it raises money for the host city's local children's hospital. On Aug. 6, the organization presented a generous donation of $23,000 to the CAMC Foundation and CAMC Women and Children's Hospital.
The term "Devil Dog" was given to the Marines during World War I when they engaged the enemy in hand-to-hand combat. The Military Order of the Devil Dog (MODD) was organized in Boston in 1939.
