We are Americans who respect and honor the service of our Veterans and want them to know that we care. Our purpose is to give our community an opportunity to say thank you, and to show members of our military, and our veterans, that we are people who appreciate what they do on our behalf, day in and day out.
Our signature event is hosted annually in partnership with the Roger C. Peace Rehabilitation Hospital, for combat veterans from the Marine Special Operations Command (MARSOC) and members of the Wounded Warrior Regiment in Greenville SC. We invite them into our homes in Keowee Key in South Carolina for four days during which we share our amenities and those of the surrounding community.
Other activities include a family getaway program and a Care package for deployed National Guardsmen. We have teamed with other organizations such as Roger C. Peace Rehabilitation Hospital to create the Peace House and with Purple Heart Homes to create the Golden Corner Chapter to remodel homes for veterans with disabilities.
We can’t all be heroes, some of us have to stand on the curb and clap as they go by ….Mark Twain
